moscow-victory-day

Leaders from 30 countries have confirmed that they will be participating in the celebrations for the 70th anniversary since the Allied forces’ victory over Nazi Germany, scheduled to take place in Moscow between May 8 and 10. In addition, the leaders of several international organizations such as the UN Secretary General and the Director General of UNESCO will also be participating in the events said the Russian President’s assistant, Yuri Ushakov.

Greece will be represented in the celebrations by Greek Parliament Speaker and member of the SYRIZA-led coalition government Zoi Konstantopoulou and a government official that has not yet been named. Konstantopoulou is expected to attend the military parade which will be held in Moscow.

The parade will be one of the largest in recent years, with 15,000 servicemen, as well as 250 military vehicles. One of the tanks that will be presented at the parade is the Russian Army’s new Armata T-14 medium tank which has not yet been unveiled to the public, while 140 military aircrafts will fly above Moscow.

One of Armata’s huge advantages is its adaptability to battle conditions, since among other things it has the ability to change guns, even using a 30mm gun for shooting flying targets. Furthermore, the Armata also has a strong protection system from enemy weapons, while it is able to shield itself during an attack, using anti-tank missiles and rockets.

The Victory Day celebrations in Russia will last all day (May 9) with concerts, exhibitions, film screenings and other events, as well as fireworks to conclude the day.

  1. Tsipiras reasons for being pro-Russia are the Marxist’s transparent attempt to apply pressure to get handouts from EU. However a broken clock still gets the time right once and while. We should indeed create stronger relationship with Russia but not for the reasons of communists.

    Our NATO allies have clearly betrayed us to Skopje while majority of Greeks still fantasize countries like UK and US are our “allies”. We need to open doors to new allies since our dishonorable “allies” now all act like they don’t notice Skopje manipulating name to usurp our identity and irredentism to hide their mistake of recognizing them. (as we warned would happen if they ridiculously called Slavs “ethnic” Macedonians). Our “allies” are literally now trying to subtlety ethnically delete Greek vis-a-vis trying to delete our identity as “real’ Greeks. It would be a great irony of history if Russia ended up defending us from Skopje as unprincipled US and David Cameron of the Former French Possession of Britain supported Skopje.

    …………………
    “The Department has noted with considerable apprehension increasing propaganda rumors and semi-official statements in favor of an autonomous Macedonia, emanating principally from Bulgaria, but also from Yugoslav Partisan and other sources, with the implication that Greek territory would be included in the projected state. This (US) Government considers talk of Macedonian “nation”, Macedonian “Fatherland”, or Macedonia “national consciousness” to be unjustified demagoguery representing no ethnic nor political reality, and sees in its present revival a possible cloak for aggressive intentions against Greece.

  2. agree with having relations with Russia AND everyone else. Greece has always played all sides from West to East from Arab countries to Israel

    Russia though is not an ally on the Macedonia name issue. They, including Putin, have called Skopje/FYROM “Macedonia” and have acted the same way as the rest of the world. Not to mention Russia’s support of Stalin and the communist rebels during the Greek Civil War.

    Also Greece has a 250 year history of getting burned by Russia. better 100 years with the US/NATO than 1 day with Russia if one were to choose.

    Regarding Greece and Russia google “Όταν το ξανθό γένος γύριζε την πλάτη στην ομόθρησκη Ελλάδα” article from news247 and “Το ξανθό γένος των Ρώσων που θα σώσει την Ελλάδα». Ένα ωραίο παραμύθι, που η Ελλάδα το πλήρωνε πάντα με αίμα… ” from mixanitouxronou

    the rest of your statements are hyperbole. stop living in the past.

    In 1992 Russia was the first country to recognize FYROM as “Macedonia”

  3. you go on an on about Macedonia and IMRO and commie traitors then completely excuse the country responsible for the Komitadjis in the Macedonian struggle, the brutal occupation of Northern Greece during WW2, and one of the countries (with albania another enemy forever) that allowed the commie traitors to flow freely in and out of the borders during the Civil War and supplied arms and support all the while ONLY criticizing the commie traitors

    makes ZERO sense

  4. yet you hold those who voted against Samaras as responsible for what happened 70 years ago and call half the country traitors. seems like you are racist against half the country because they didn’t vote for Samaras

    makes 0 sense

    Bulgaria, Albania, and Yugoslavia – all countries you adore and want Greece to have excellent relations with despite the fact that they were Greece’s enemies in the civil war, the war you are endlessly obsessed with, will never let go of their desire to have Macedonia and Thessaloniki.

  5. again watch your mouth and your insults

    you, like your beloved golden dawn, DESPISE the Greek Resistance against the Nazis, both left and right resistance groups. THESE are the heroes, and yes heroes, Syriza and everyone that is not a golden dawn supporter praise to this day not the civil war commies

    handouts? like the 350 billion Samaras gave to the banks who could not stand to take losses on their bets, while giving up Greece’s autonomy and selling out the country. those handouts?

  6. “again watch your mouth and your insults”

    You stander my as GD support and Nazi then tell me to watch my mouth? Then you ridiculously claim Samara supports handouts rather than communists? Clearly truth and reality isn’t high on your agenda.

  7. Leftists obviously prioritize their handout mentality ahead of every other issue facing Greece. They trivialize the Skopje issue when effectively Skopje, and Skopje supporters, are literally trying to ethnically delete Greeks (through side channel attack of trying to delete our very identity). Unfortunately “Greek” leftists are too moronic to realize this. Treason is the calling card of the proud anti nationalist “Greek” left after all.
