    Russia’s servicemen and military hardware have given a good account of themselves at the Victory Day Parade in Moscow, Russian army's Land Forces Commander-in-Chief Col. Gen. Oleg Salyukov said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Salyukov noted that such a positive result was achieved by long-lasting preparations of all the participants of the parade, including the Defense Ministry’s leadership, in particular, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

    "The parade units marched well, the [military] equipment went well, almost without reprimands," Salyukov told reporters.
