BTW, it's not "May Day", it's Victory Day.

It's not May 1st, it's May 9th.

Celebrating the Victory over the Nazis in WWII.

Well, it USED to be about that.

These days, it's more about showing off all the military's new toys, from their huge modernisation program in recent years; from self propelled artillery

and tanks


and combat robots

and drones

to mobile nuclear missile launchers

and stealth fighter jets


Trump would probably enjoy the female personnel especially

:D

That was years ago, back when Bush, as you see, was still US President lol


In other words, long before all the current troubles, when Russia wasn't yet such an adversary for the West...

In those days Putin was still at least pretending to be a nice guy.

Maybe even not pretending, maybe back then he even had a genuine wish to join Western institutions, even NATO: Putin Says He Discussed Russia's Possible NATO Membership With Bill Clinton

Although, I personally doubt it.

Once a KGB man, you are a KGB man for life, as he has also himself said: Vladimir Putin / Quotes - TV Tropes

And a KGB man could never want to be friends with the West...

But, still. This was before even the 2008 war with Georgia. Back then, NOBODY saw Russia as any kind of a resurgent threat...
