Ambiguous episode from the celebration of the Victory Day on Red Square.
In the broadcast of the First Channel, from the Victory Day, an episode occurred when Vladimir Putin’s guard pushed back a veteran walking next to him. The president moved in the direction of the Alexander Garden to lay flowers on the grave of the Unknown Soldier. After Putin noticed that the veteran was taken by the guards, he took them aside and shook hands with the serviceman.
On “Russia 24” the details of this episode were told: the invited veteran wanted to personally approach the president, but he was not allowed to guard. After that, Putin called on the military to lay flowers in the Alexander Garden together with the President of Serbia and the Prime Minister of Israel.
