PRAGUE, April 27. /TASS/. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico has confirmed that he will take part in celebrations on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s Victory in the Second World War in Moscow.
"If it’s a problem for someone, I don’t feel shame. It’s history," Fico said Monday.
He said he will take part in the ceremony to honor the memory of Soviet soldiers-liberators. He will lay wreaths to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Fico will not attend the Victory Parade. At that time, he will meet with Czech President Milos Zeman. According to the Czech leader’s spokesperson, they will discuss the state and prospects of bilateral relations.
Earlier, Slovak President Andrej Kiska refused to attend Moscow celebrations. Unlike his country’s premier, he supports the current Kiev authorities in the Ukrainian crisis.
