MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov doesn’t think that the absence of Belarusian president in Moscow on May 9 is politically motivated, the more so since the Belarusian Army units will take part in the Victory parade, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday in an interview with three Russian radio stations.
"The units of the Belarusian military will take part in the parade on May 9, the presidential administration has already commented on the issue," he said.
"Alexander Lukashenko will be in Moscow on May 8 to take part in a number of events scheduled for that day, then he will leave for Belarus to review troops during the parade in Minsk," he added.
