MOSCOW, September 1. /TASS/. Brass orchestras from 12 countries, including from NATO states, will take part in the Spasskaya Tower Military Music Festival in the Russian capital, Moscow Cultural Department Head Alexander Kibovsky told TASS on Tuesday.
People of art will arrive in Moscow for the traditional festival as they don’t pay attention to disagreements among politicians, he said.
"We’ll see concert and orchestra bands from 12 countries, mainly military orchestras, including from several NATO states. All art and cultural figures say this story [the Western sanctions] is not about us. As many as 1,200 festival participants will march in a ceremonial parade along Tverskaya Street on September 5. This is the best answer to the fears of this kind," Kibovsky said.
Besides, "we’re broadly inviting ambassadors from foreign countries to our festival" for the first time this year, he added.
Representatives of 20 countries have already confirmed that they will attend the opening ceremony on Red Square in Moscow, Kibovsky said. "This also means a lot.".
