RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin has insisted the massive military parade through Red Square today was ‘rather jolly’.
He rejected claims of trying to terrify everyone and said the parade was a ‘fun day out’ for tank commanders and the people who look after the inter-continental ballistic missiles.
He added: “Every time I move so much as a soldier, you all accuse me of being a warmongering lunatic. Can I not just have a lovely, happy day with my huge and incredibly well-equipped armed forces?
“We’re going to have a nice picnic now. I suppose you want to try and spoil that too?”
