1.500 troops to march on December 1 at the National Parade in Bucharest

1,500 servicemen will march on December 1 at the National Parade, organized this year, at the Triumphal Arch in the Capital.

On Saturday, in the Army Training Center from Ghencea, two trainings took place in which the smallest details were finalized.

The trainings in the Ghencea Polygon followed not only the perfect cadence of the military, but also of the fighting machines. The troops from Defense Ministry, Internal Affairs Ministry and Romanian Intelligence Service (SRI) will be joined this year by colleagues from the Special Telecommunications Service (STS).

“1,500 soldiers will participate from all defense and public order structures,” said Lieutenant General Gheorghita Vlad, commander of the National Parade.

This year, the Piranha 5 armored personnel carriers and Himars and Patriot missile systems will participate for the first time in the December 1st Military Parade.

The number of guests at the National Parade will be limited to 400 people in the Triumphal Arch Square. Outside the perimeter, however, the public will be able to watch the parade of the military, military techniques, but also the overflight of aircraft. People have to wear a mask and keep their social distance, for health reasons.

“This is the first time they will parade in combat uniform to give a security signal, in the context of the risks from the neighbors”, explained the commander of the National Parade.

The final rehearsals took place Sunday morning in the perimeter of the Triumphal  Arch, and for two hours road traffic in the area was  restricted.
