Russia has marked the anniversary, "Victory Day" with a military parade in the center of the capital, Moscow.

Except for the parade of military units and the speech of Russian President Vladimir Putin, everything was pale in contrast to other years.

There were also Russian citizens protesting against the aggression in the Ukrainian state.

At an Immortal Regiment parade outside Moscow today, police pulled a woman out of the crowd and arrested her for carrying a sign with her veteran relative captioned, "He did not want to repeat [the war]!"

"He fought for peace!"

"At an Immortal Regiment parade outside Moscow today, police pulled a woman out of the crowd and arrested her for holding up a sign reading 'He did not want to repeat [the war]!'

He fought for peace! '", Wrote on Twitter, Kevin Rothrock, editor of the Russian media Medusa as he shows that the woman remembered her late grandfather.

We emphasize that the international media had reported for days about a magnificent parade organized by Russia, which would be held in several Ukrainian cities, but in the end did not take place.

Otherwise, Putin through propaganda has tried to convince the people that he is reaping victory and that he is helping his compatriots in Ukraine.
