Mocking the West for backing Ukraine in the midst of escalating war, Russia on Monday made its top officials stand on UK-made luxury cars to walk the route of the Victory Day parade. Russia is celebrating the 77th anniversary of its victory over Nazi Germany and the end of World War II with an elaborate Victory Day parade in Moscow’s Red Square on May 9.

The Orus, a luxurious armored limousine worth £120,000, was unveiled at the parade. The “unapologetic Rolls-Royce”—as designated by Autoweek magazine—is a prized possession of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Daily Mail reported that the convertible Roll is an upgraded version of Putin’s car used over the past year. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu rode the Aurus Cabriolet during rehearsals as well as Monday’s event.

Russia’s Victory Day Parade

Nuclear missiles and high-tech weapons marched through the Russian capital on Monday. Seen as Russia’s muscle-flexing, also saw the thermonuclear RS-24 ballistic missile, which has the capability to carry up to 10 warheads. As the Daily Mail reported, the ballistic missile parade was the highlight of a row of armed Russian guards atop a 16-wheeler. In total, 150 samples of military equipment went through Red Square, including Armata tanks, Kurganate infantry vehicles, Boomerang armored personnel carriers and Kolitsia-SV howitzers, the Kremlin said in a statement. About 13,000 soldiers are taking part in the Victory Day march through Red Square at thirty-three. DW reported that smaller parades took place in Vladivostok and Novosibirsk.

Soldiers in Ukraine fighting for Russian security: Putin

Putin inaugurated the parade with a massive speech, where he reiterated his war narrative and said that Russian troops in Ukraine are “fighting” for Russian security. He said the attack he carried out on February 24 was “the only right decision” and a preemptive step to deter potential threats from the West.
