Military parade marks Poland's Constitution Day
Featuring over 2 000 soldiers, a Strong Through Alliances military parade was held on Friday in Warsaw on the occasion of the May 3rd Constitution Day.
The parade started with the anthems of Poland, the EU and NATO. It was attended by state representatives including President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
Over 2 000 people took part in the parade, including soldiers from the Polish Armed Forces and allied forces. The parade involved the participation of other uniformed services subservient to the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration.
The 'Strong Through Alliances' military parade featured over 200 vehicles, as well as the latest equipment of the Armed Forces and Police. In addition, close to 80 aircraft - planes and helicopters - have been presented.
The parade moved along the Wisłostrada (a succession of streets by the Vistula river) in Warsaw. The event was also an opportunity to meet soldiers of the Polish Armed Forces at promotional stands.
The May 3rd Constitution of 1791 was Europe's first written supreme law and the world's second, behind the American one. It introduced a hereditary constitutional monarchy (in place of the free election of kings), religious tolerance and the division of power into the legislative, executive and judicial branches, among other provisions.
