The military parade to mark the 76th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in the 1941-1945 Great Patriotic War will take place on Moscow’s Red Square in the accustomed format while spectators’ presence will depend on the epidemic situation, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday, APA reports citing TASS.

As the Kremlin spokesman noted, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has already stated that the Victory Day Parade will take place.

"The parade’s format will be usual but as for the presence of spectators, their number and so on, this, of course, will depend on the requirements that will be defined together with Rospotrebnadzor [Russia’s consumer rights watchdog]," Peskov said.

So far, "the dynamics [with regard for the coronavirus situation in Russia] inspire optimism but do not give a possibility to relax," he stressed.
