The ceremonial squadron of the armed forces of India will take part in the celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of Victory in Moscow. The TASS correspondent learned this on Tuesday from the press service of the Ministry of Defence of India.
“The ceremonial squadron of the armed forces of India will come to Moscow – to take part in the parade dedicated to the 70th Anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War – on April 25, to participate in rehearsals, and then on May 9, will make the solemn march through Red Square,” says the press service of the ministry. “The Indian armed forces will be represented by 70 military ground troops in modern dress uniform and carrying small arms.”
It is noted that the honor to represent India at the Victory Parade will go to the best drill squadron, which will also participate in the annual parade in New Delhi during that country’s Republic Day.
As the TASS correspondent learned earlier from the Ministry of External Affairs of India, the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, will also take part in the Moscow celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of Victory.
