    About 1,500 members of the Baltic Fleet and other military branches, as well as modern equipment in service with the fleet, took part in the victory parade on the main square of the city of Kaliningrad on 24 June.

    A servicewoman of the Baltic Fleet lost her shoe during the victory parade in Kaliningrad on 24 June.

    Despite the incident, the woman did not break the line and continued to march on with only one shoe on. 

    The part of the parade with a barefoot servicewoman has been published on Twitter.

    The Baltic Fleet's press service has confirmed that the woman will be rewarded for not interrupting the parade.

    Russia commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 by holding military parades and celebrations across the country.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin previously ordered that the annual military Victory Day parade in Moscow be postponed from the traditional 9 May to 24 June due to the coronavirus pandemic.
