HAKIKO, Russia — A new uniform for the Soviet troops in World War II will be unveiled Thursday as the world prepares to mark its 50th anniversary.
The uniform, designed by Russian artist Dmitriy Gostin, will be a red-white-and-blue design inspired by the Red Army.
The design was chosen after Russian artists met in Moscow with the country’s government to work out how to create the uniform, the Associated Press reported.
The designers were inspired by Soviet uniforms worn during the Red Revolution, the AP reported.
They said they wanted the uniform to represent the Soviet military and its efforts to defeat Nazi Germany.
The Russian government said it hopes the uniform will be widely worn in the coming weeks and months.
