Russian authorities in annexed Crimea and the city of Sevastopol canceled traditional military parades to celebrate Victory Day and Labor Day. Security reasons are cited
Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation
Sergei Aksyonov posted on Telegram that there will be no parades or marches to mark Labor Day on May 1 or Victory Day on May 9 which celebrates the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.
Victory Day is celebrated throughout Russia and has become central to Vladimir Putin’s idea of Russian identity, according to The Guardian.
Aksyonov wrote: Local authorities will visit the veterans and congratulate them on Victory Day.
His comments contradicted those made by the Russian-installed governor of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhayev, who wrote on Telegram that the May 9 military parade had not been cancelled:
The decision to cancel the May 9 military parade in Sevastopol has not been made yet. Now there are consultations with the Ministry of Defense, the decision to organize the Parade in Sevastopol is the prerogative of the military department.
