Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the country's military parade to mark the 75th anniversary of the Soviet victory against the Nazis in World War II will be held on June 24.

Putin postponed the Victory Day parade last month from its traditional date of May 9, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We will do this on June 24, the day when the legendary, historic parade of winners took place, when fighters who fought near Moscow and defended Leningrad, who fought near Stalingrad, liberated Europe and stormed Berlin, walked along Red Square," Putin said on Tuesday during an online meeting with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, Xinhua reported.
