The first Immortal Regiment March was held in the Russian city of Tomsk in 2012. Just a year later, it became a nationwide event and soon a tradition, with people honouring the memory of Great Patriotic War veterans.
Sputnik is live from Moscow, as thousands of people join the Immortal Regiment march on the 77th anniversary of Nazi Germany's defeat in the Second World War. The participants will march in central Moscow, carrying portraits of their relatives who fought against the Nazis during WWII.
