The chosen date coincides with the 1945 victory parade in Moscow.
"We will do it on June 24, [on] the day when the legendary, historic victory parade took place in 1945, when soldiers who defended Moscow and Leningrad, fought at Stalingrad, liberated Europe and stormed Berlin marched on Red Square," Putin said.
The march of the Immortal Regiment – an annual procession commemorating family members who fought in WWII – will be held on July 26, coinciding with Navy Day. Putin noted that the procession may be called off if risks to public health remain.
Russia postponed all celebrations linked to the 75th anniversary of the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany in mid-April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Vladimir Putin then said that "large-scale and triumphant" celebrations would resume once the spread of the disease had subsided.
Media outlet Proekt had previously reported that hundreds of servicemen and cadets had contracted the coronavirus during parade rehearsals in the Moscow region.
Russia has posted under 10,000 new infections for 11 straight days, indicating a flattening of its COVID-19 curve. The country is gradually easing its lockdown, as multiple Russian regions have begun easing previously introduced restrictions.
