WARSAW, March 16. /TASS/. Poland’s President Bronislaw Komorowski confirmed on Monday he would not go to Moscow to attend celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Second World War.
"There is no such possibility in the current situation for the Polish president to take part in the celebrations watching the Victory Parade in conditions on ongoing war in Ukraine," he told the local television.
Earlier, he came out with an initiative to organize European-level on May 8 celebrations on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the victory in WWII in Gdansk’s Westerplatte peninsula, from where the Second World War started. The office of the Polish president is working on this project.
Meanwhile, Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the Russian president, said that refusal of a number of Western leaders to attend a jubilee Victory Parade in Moscow would not tell on the scale of the celebrations. "It will not impact the spirit of the holiday, its emotional component and the scale of celebrations," he told the Russian News Service.
