The president of the Russian Federation of Artistic Gymnastics, Irina Weiner, was photographed leading the rehearsal of the military parade, which is supposed to take place towards the anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

In video footage that surfaced on social media, Weiner is seen guiding members of the parade at the Gymnastics Palace in Moscow.

In the video, men and women dressed in military uniforms are seen marching to the tune of the song "Stalin gave the order", according to a local Ukrainian news site.

The parade is scheduled to take place today (Wednesday) when in Russia they are preparing to mark one year since the signal given by Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine on February 24, 2022, it should be noted that at the same event, the Russian artistic gymnastics team is also expected to perform at the "celebratory concert".

Wiener is considered one of the most successful artistic gymnastics coaches of all time, having coached, among others, the Olympic champion Yevgenia Knaeva, Alina Kabaeva and Yulia Barsukova.

She became the head coach of the Russian national team in 2001 before being elected president of the Russian Artistic Gymnastics Federation in 2008.

The International Olympic Committee awarded Wiener the Olympic Order in 2015 in recognition of her outstanding achievements in sports.

Wiener was married to Russian oligarch Alisher Usmanov for 30 years before their divorce in May last year.

Osmanov agreed to step aside as president of the International Fencing Federation following the European Union's decision to impose economic sanctions on him over Russia's military attack on Ukraine.

It is important to note that the Russian gymnastics branch has been banned from competing by the International Gymnastics Federation since last March in response to the war in Ukraine.
