May 9 Parade rehearsals have been on for a week now in Alabino near Moscow. Our correspondents have visited one and found out if there would be anything new for guests and TV viewers on Victory Day 2016.

Rehearsals are held at the so-called ‘Red Square mockup’ ground. Its size and marking are the same as those of the country’s main square, where our military and combat equipment will march in parade formations.
