Victory Day in Lugansk – Videos, and Details!

I recently filmed Victory Day in Lugansk, capital of the Lugansk People’s Republic, Donbass. Here are the videos, on a day in which around 100,000 people turned out to mark the historic celebration of victory over fascism in WWII.

The beginning –

The military parade – 

The military vehicle parade – 

Just some of the entertainment, as local kids put on a show – 

A mass march of people through the city, representing organisations, companies, associations –

The march of the ‘Immortal Regiment’, where people bear placards, usually of their forefathers who fought in the wars –

Firework display after the evening concert – 

And this, just a sampling of the videos, of a truly remarkable day in Lugansk!
