MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. The Kremlin will be glad to see leaders of other countries at V-Day celebrations in Moscow but believes May 9 is a holiday of Russian veterans who won that war, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
"Moscow will be glad to see all who would like to share with us the joy of this event and the understanding of the importance of joint efforts against challenges and threats to the entire humankind," he said. "But first of all this is our holiday. Because we are the winners. It is a holiday for our veterans who won that war."
"We are glad to see all but first of all it is our own holiday," Peskov said. "So, let us look upon it this way."
He said the Kremlin would later make public a list of those world leaders who had confirmed their presence at the V-Day celebrations. "I think by the end of this month we will make public the list (of those leaders who plan to go to Moscow to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the victory in WWII)," he added.
