Bush, Putin Join In Red Square Parade Marking Allied World War II Victory

 World leaders have converged on Red Square in Moscow for a big parade to celebrate the allied victory in World War Two.

Cannons boomed, music blared and ranks of soldiers marched past, many in uniforms like those the Red Army wore into battle 60 years ago. Fighter jets screamed overhead streaming colored smoke.

Russian President Vladimir Putin led the observance, calling the allied triumph over the Nazis a "victory of good over evil."

President Bush sat next to Putin in bleachers erected in front of the Kremlin walls. German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder was among the four dozen other leaders who watched.

Putin recalled the huge price paid by the Soviet Union in the war -- an estimated 28 (m) million dead. He said, "I bow low before all veterans of Great Patriotic War."
