The march in honor of the parade, which took place on November 7, 1941, on Red Square, was canceled due to the coronavirus. This was reported by the press service of the Moscow Department of Regional Security and Anti-Corruption, RIA Novosti reports.
For the same reason, the Moscow government did not agree to hold public events on November 4. They were planned to be held in different parts of the city.
Earlier this year, the Victory Parade was also postponed due to the coronavirus. Instead of May 9, celebrations were held on June 24. By decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin, this day was declared non-working.
The parade on Red Square, dedicated to the 24th anniversary of the October Revolution, took place on November 7, 1941. At that time, the front line passed several tens of kilometers from Moscow. In 2005, November 7 was declared the Day of Russian Military Glory.
