Students at one Moscow school have met pilots from the legendary Normandie-Niemen squadron, which is in town to take part in the Victory Day parade.
The school has a special museum dedicated to the history of the famous French squadron that fought in three campaigns on behalf of the Soviet Union and received numerous awards from both countries.
On Tuesday night, the squadron held its first rehearsal with Russian and other foreign troops on Red Square, among them military units from Russia's main alliesÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ France, Great Britain, the US, and the former countries of the Soviet Union.
Around one thousand foreigners will participate in the parade, all of whom received special medals from the Russian Ministry of Defense.
