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!
