MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. The Kremlin this year expects foreign states’ leaders to attend the Victory Day festivities in Moscow on May 9 and the Victory parade on red Square, although no official invitations have been extended because this year it is not a jubilee event, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov told journalists on Thursday.
"The parade will be held in the usual regime; the foreign guests will attend, but no special invitations from the president have been extended," Ushakov said.
The Russian presidential aide said that last year invitations were sent to many foreign leaders to attend the parade, because it was a jubilee year and wide-scale celebrations were planned, including a number of international summits.
