Russian President Dmitry Medvedev (C) and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin (R) greet WWII veterans at the nation's Victory Day parade on Red Square in Moscow on May 9, 2009 in commemoration of the end of WWII. Russia sternly warned its foes not to dare make any aggression against the country, as it put on a Soviet-style show of military might in Red Square including nuclear capable missiles.

Russia's military armoured vehicles move along Red Square in central Moscow during Victory Day celebrations May 9, 2009. President Dmitry Medvedev warned against "military adventurism" on Saturday, saying Russia would firmly defend its interests -- just as it did during World War Two when the Soviet Union defeated fascism. Medvedev, opening the biggest and most spectacular Victory Day parade in modern Russia's history, clearly aimed his warning at post-Soviet neighbour Georgia which Russia defeated in a five-day war last August.
Q: when did the russians stop painting the tyres for parades? (or regarding the last pictures, did they?)
Sucks that I missed the parade. Really wanted to see it. Have to wait till next year....
Great Victory Day!!!!!
