As we reported before, Russia's Armed Forces put thousands of soldiers on lockdown after they participated in rehearsals for the Victory Day parade in Moscow.
"The defense ministry said it would be sending the soldiers, estimated to number 15,000, back to their bases, where they would be put under a two-week quarantine. The ministry did not indicate that any of the soldiers had been infected with the coronavirus. The announcement came days after Vladimir Putin postponed celebrations for Victory Day on 9 May, a significant holiday in Russia usually marked by a military parade in Red Square and events where Russians pay respects to victims and veterans of the second world war," writes the outlet.
