The Russian leadership considers it a good idea to hold a military parade of the "DNR" illegal armed formations in occupied Donetsk on June 24, timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Victory over fascism. This was stated by spokesman for the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov.
"This may be timed to coincide with the parade in Moscow, but holding the parade itself on the occasion of the significant date - the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of our peoples is understandable, and this is something to be proud of", - the Kremlin's speaker cites Russian media.
As previously reported, Russia finances the so-called "DNR/LNR army corps", supplies it with equipment, ammunition and personnel. The armed formations, illegal in Ukraine, are, in fact, part of the Russian occupation army.
