Crack troops demonstrate their skill

What could be more Russian than the national anthem playing in front of Saint Basil's Cathedral, on Red Square, as trained bears tow artillery on parade!

Nothing else we could think of.

Unfortunately, Wojtek and his friends were on vacation, so the artillery salute had to go on without him. Check out the cool video below during the 2017 Victory Day Parade.

Wojtek (Voi-tek) the Polish Bear helped the army in WW2 by pulling artillery shells.
