Some 25 world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel are expected to attend the Red Square celebrations.
The parade will also see for the first time the participation of military units from Britain, the U.S. and France.
The first parade in Moscow took place on June 22, 1945, marking the end of the war that claimed some 55 million lives.
