Following the official parade comes the semi-official March of the Immortal Regiment. In 2017, over 800,000 Russians and foreign attendees marched through central Moscow in commemoration of those who perished and those who survived World War II. Marchers typically carry photos of those who served in the Great Patriotic War against Germany, sing patriotic songs, and pass through Red Square in an emotional display.
