Putin pledged ahead of the Victory Day Parade despite the threat of coronavirus

Russia's deferred military parade takes place on Wednesday as Putin seeks to increase referendum

Russia postponed its Victory Day military parade on Wednesday despite a coronavirus infection as Vladimir Putin tried to increase popularity in a referendum to prolong the time he was in office.

The parade commemorates the defeat of Nazi Germany and increased proportionality in the years since Putin came to power at the turn of the century.

The Russian president will vote to amend his country's constitution on July 1, allowing Putin to run for president twice, possibly extending his stay in the Kremlin by 2036.

After the Travis Red Square, 14,000 Russian soldiers patriotism, as well as tanks, artillery, and airplanes begins the nation's military prowess online voting.

The preparations for the parade included complicated thoughts on Russia's first exit from the Coronavirus shelter, adapting to the important political climate.

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobianin was introduced earlier this month to create pressure to end the city's lockout, but he urged viewers to watch the passing military hardware so that the streets are not crowded. "It's good to see it on television," he said. "There should be no spectators, no spectators."

Access to Red Square and Putin will be restricted, with journalists placed in the press center and participants in the parade before the event. Two weeks before the event, there were dozens of World War II veterans over the age of 90 in a health center outside Moscow. A Kremlin spokesman said: "They were in fantastic conditions there."

Russia reported 7,425 new coronavirus infections on Tuesday, bringing the total number of reported infections to 600,000. 8,359 people have been confirmed dead - this number cannot be recovered.

Prior to the parade, Putin wrote a 9,000-word essay in the conservative US magazine National Interest, rewriting the history of the West War and defending Soviet involvement in the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-offensive agreement with Nazi Germany.

This week, Putin opened a massive new military cathedral in one of the largest Orthodox churches in the country, where the war was completed as a national religion, but apparently, with fake steps from Nazi military tanks to scrap metal.

"It is absolutely sacred to us, the citizens of Russia, the memory of the great patriotic war, all those who have fought and died, and the victory in every way. It is always with us, it gives us strength - the strength to serve our country, we have no right to go back Putin said in a speech Monday at the cathedral outside Moscow that he mourned the day the Soviet Union attacked Germany in 1941. An estimated 27 million Soviet civilians were killed in the war.

Foreign leaders such as Emmanuel Macron and Xi Jinping attended this year's parade due to coronaviruses. Meanwhile, more than a dozen major Russian cities have canceled the parade or held them without the rush. The governor of the Pskov region, where the Elite Airborne Division is located, will march for "the health of the public and, above all, the health of our beloved veterans."

The Crimea governor of the peninsula, which came from Ukraine in 2014, said that Valval had reviewed the decision after speaking with Moscow, canceling a parade and putting it back on hold.
