Minsk recreates first festive parade of WWII

The first post-war procession on the liberated Minsk in July 1944 was recreated in the center of the Belarusian capital 73 years later, on June 24 in 2017. Please watch the video to feel the atmosphere of that time.

Like 73 years ago, young people marched down the street.

They were welcomed by the former Red Army soldiers, witnesses of the terrible days of the war - veterans of the Great Patriotic War, which the period of 1941-1945 is referred to in Belarusian history. The procession was followed by some exciting activities for today's youth. At the end of the parade, everyone could taste the soldier's porridge, decipher the message of a radio operator and just walk under peaceful sky.
