A Bright, Sunny Day

*** begin quote ***

But there are still living veterans, who, like me, saw the Russian president leave the post-parade luncheon for visiting heads of state to plunge into a stream of three hundred thousand Russians marching in memory of “The Immortal Brigade.”  Each participant carried a picture of a family member, who had served in the struggle to defeat the mighty Huns.

A relaxed and upbeat Putin carried a photograph of his father, a submariner. (A U.S. president in similar circumstances would have been accompanied down the stairs and into the square by a crowd of 40 Secret Service thugs, a motorcycle police escort and several detachments of armed marines.)

Maybe it was a publicity stunt, but I don’t think so. Only two body guards were visible, and each kept a close but discreet distance while Putin mingled freely with crowds of ordinary Muscovites.

This certain puts a different spin on the evil Putin. (And, I have no doubt the KGB officer in him has much to atone for.)

“The Immortal Brigade”!

“27 million dead” fighting the Nazis.

That’s huge.

And, they should have a parade.

For peace.
