Russia's 'Child Soldiers': Military Parade Features Kids In Uniform

About 500 Russian children, aged between 4 and 10 years, dressed in military uniforms for a parade to celebrate 70 years since the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II. The parade, in the city of Rostov-on-Don, took place under the auspices of the commander of Russia's Southern Military District on May 14 -- a few days after an enormous show of military hardware by the Kremlin in Moscow on May 9, when Russia traditionally marks the victory.
