MOSCOW, January 24. /TASS/. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin is expected to attend celebrations in Moscow on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe, Israeli ambassador in Moscow Dorit Golender told TASS.
“The former president, Shimon Peres, has already accepted the invitation,” the diplomat said. The details will be coordinated later.
Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov last December said that representatives from the anti-Hitler coalition countries and many others had been invited to attend the 70th V-Day anniversary.
“The invitations have been dispatched. I should say that some countries responded instantly, while others are still considering the invitation. That’s a normal procedure, because there is much time left before the ceremonies,” Ushakov said.
