Medvedev warns on boundaries

Vladimir Radyuhin

MOSCOW: Russia displayed its massive military might on Friday in the first Victory Day parade in Moscow since the break-up of the Soviet Union 17 years ago. Nuclear missile launchers and tanks rolled through Red Square two days after Dmitry Medvedev was sworn in as the President.

Opening the parade, Mr. Medvedev urged vigilance against “attempts to interfere in the affairs of other states, especially redraw borders” and “flout the international law.”“The history of world wars teaches us: conflicts do not originate on their own; they are ignited by those who put their irresponsible ambitions above the interests of countries and whole continents,” he said.

The former President, Vladimir Putin, appointed Prime Minister on Thursday, stood alongside Mr. Medvedev in a tribute in front of Lenin’s Mausoleum shrouded in a hoarding displaying the Russian flag. The show of strength on the 63rd anniversary of Soviet victory over Nazi Germany symbolised growing assertiveness following eight years of Mr. Putin’s presidency, which saw a revival of the war machine.
