A military parade took place in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski, Kamchatka Krai, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of victory in World War II, Wednesday. The footage shows troops marching and carrying the Soviet Banner of Victory and the Russian flag. War veterans, current soldiers, sailors and Cadet School students gathered at a monument to those who died in the war.

Thousands of local residents carrying photographs of their relatives and others who lived through WWII gathered in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski to watch the parade and take part in a rally of the "Immortal Regiment" ("Bessmertni Polk"), a symbolic march to commemorate the 70th anniversary and to honour the war dead.

Celebrations are set to take place in various places in the Russian Far East, from the Kamchatka peninsula to the city of Vladivostok. Besides Kamchatka the city of Khabarovsk held an "Immortal Regiment" parade and the city of Chita - the largest military parade. Russia's Pacific Fleet parade is expected in Sakhalinsk.

On September 2, 1945 Japan signed its declaration of surrender on board the US "Missouri" battleship, marking the last day of WWII.
