    The aerial parade held in Moscow on the 75th anniversary of the victory against Nazi Germany in WWII witnessed some 75 military helicopters and planes flying over Red Square and the Kremlin.

    A video filmed from a Russian Su-25 combat aircraft soaring in the sky above Moscow has recently emerged on Twitter.

    The footage was apparently recorded during the 9 May celebrations marking the 75th anniversary of the World War II Victory in Europe.

    While the military parade, which is held annually on 9 May in Moscow, had been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the aerial part of the parade was conducted as planned, with a total of 75 military helicopters and planes flying over Red Square and the Kremlin.

    The video shows an Su-25 and several other aircraft of that type flying in formation and releasing colored smoke that forms an image of the Russian flag in the sky above the city.
