MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS/. Venezuelan government believes it is an honor to be represented at the top-level VE-Day celebrations in Moscow this year, Venezuelan Ambassador to Russia, Juan Vicente Paredes Torrealba said on Wednesday.
He was among a group of Latin American ambassadors who laid flowers at the Unknown Soldier’s Tomb in the Alexander Gardens by the northwest wall of the Kremlin.
"It’s a great honor for us to pay tribute to the Soviet soldiers and to their input into victory over Nazism," Paredes said. "Today’s Russia is a great nation and like Venezuela it has been pounded with sanctions. But the latter will never hamper a people if it’s united and its spirit is strong, if it’s seeking progress and fairness."
Paredes also said President Nicolas Maduro’s arrival in Moscow is expected on May 8.
"Maduro will join President Putin at the Victory Parade on May 9 and that’s an honor for the entire Venezuelan nation," he said.
