May 9, 2016 at 15:03 GMT +00:00 · Published

Drone footage captured the Victory Day parade in the Chechen capital of Grozny, marking the 71st anniversary of Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in the Great Patriotic War (World War II).

Around 3,000 servicemen marched through the streets of the city centre with more than 60 units of military equipment, including several vehicles dating from the 1940s.

The Grozny parade was part of the commemoration services marking victory over Nazi Germany in WWII, featuring a series of parades that took place in over 20 major Russian cities.

The parade took place despite the fact that a suicide attack took place at a checkpoint in the city earlier on Monday. According to local police, six policemen were injured. The attack was carried out by two men armed with grenades, who were stopped by officers as they tried to enter the city. The identity of the attackers is currently being investigated.
