The Russian military is gearing up for Victory Day parade, which will take place on Moscow’s Red Square on May 9, 2017. Troops practiced shooting fireworks from 72 replicas of the Soviet M1942 guns during a rehearsal conducted on April 18 at the Alabino training ground in Moscow Region.
The number of artillery pieces used during the parade will symbolically honor the 72nd anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany during the World War II. During the Victory Day parade ceremony, the M1942 guns will be stationed at 16 sites throughout the capital and are set to fire 10,000 times in 10 minutes.

Roosters are busy little beavers – besides waking us up with a “soothing” song, they have to do their tidbitting dance in order attract attention from hens. They also constantly watch over them, warning other chickens when there is a potential danger and protecting them from real ones. It’s no surprise then that this fellow decided to take a rest.
