Russia to hold postponed WWII parade on June 24: Putin

President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Russia will hold a military parade to mark the 75th anniversary of victory in World War II in June, after it was postponed by the coronavirus pandemic.

"We will do it on June 24, the day the legendary victors' parade took place in 1945," Putin told Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, ordering him to begin preparations for the event.
