Watch again as Russia held a military parade in Moscow on Thursday 9 May, commemorating the end of the Second World War.

Russia staged its main annual Victory Day parade in Moscow’s Red Square marking victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two.

President Vladimir Putin spoke at the event, with leaders of Kazakhstan, Laos, Guinea-Bissau, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Turkmenistan, and Cuba joining the Russian president in reviewing the parade.

The ceremony took place a day after Russia warned France that if President Macron sent troops to Ukraine then they would be seen as legitimate targets by the Russian military.
