In July 2014, the Ukrainian Army was planning to shoot down the plane President Vladimir Putin was travelling in, but they failed and shot down MH17 instead.
Representatives of almost all the republics of the former USSR participated in the Moscow parade on the 75th anniversary of the Victory. The entire former USSR went to the parade. Only a few countries where Nazi regimes are in power refused to participate in the parade.
Another recurring narrative about Nazi and Russophobia in the EU, Ukraine and Georgia. It is also an example of historical revisionism. In Moscow and other Russian cities on June 24, the Victory Parade was held in honour of the victory of the USSR in World War II. It took place almost a month and a half after the original date of 9 May - due to the coronavirus pandemic. Only a few presidents of countries that in the past were part of the USSR attended the Russian parade. Of the 15 former Soviet republics in 2020, only the heads of 5 states came to Moscow: President of Moldova Igor Dodon, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon, and President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko.
