ULYANOVSK, April 4. /TASS/. At least 25 leaders of foreign nations and several international organisations have confirmed they would be present at the military parade commemorating Victory Day on Red Square on May 9, the head of presidential administration, Sergey Ivanov, told reporters on Saturday.
"I cannot give an exact figure right now as no-one knows it," Ivanov said. "Some of the leaders are in thoughts and we can announce their names only at the beginning of May," he said. "As of today, 25 heads of state and government and several international organisations have confirmed their participation. And at least ten so-called boxes represented by foreign armies will be at the military parade on the square [Red Square]."
"Victory Day is our holiday," Ivanov said adding: "Normal people invite near and dear for celebrations. Somebody will come, somebody not. But Russia will get through any option as it is our holiday.".
