2000 Moscow Victory Day Parade

The Moscow Victory Day Parade of 2000 was held on 9 May 2000 to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the capitulation of Nazi Germany in 1945. The parade marks the Soviet Union's victory in the Great Patriotic War.

The parade was commanded by Colonel General Ivan E Puzanov, Commander of the Moscow Military District, and reviewed by Marshal of the Russian Federation Igor Sergeyev, Minister of Defence.

A speech was made by the newly elected president Vladimir Putin.

This parade was the last to feature the old national anthem of Russia (used 1990-1991 by the Russian SFSR and 1991-2000 by the Russian Federation).
