MOSCOW, May 6. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin will review the Victory Day parade on Red Square on May 9, which is dedicated this year to the 70th anniversary the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.
A press release issued by the Kremlin on Wednesday said Putin and the foreign presidents and prime ministers, who are expected in Moscow for attending the festive events, will pay tribute to the memory of those who died on the Soviet front of World War II by laying garlands of flowers and wreaths to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the Alexander Gardens by the northwestern wall of the Kremlin.
There will be a formal photo session for Putin and the top-level foreign visitors in the Alexander Gardens, after which they will walk to the Grand Kremlin Palace to take part in a gala reception given in the name of the Russian President.
The May 9 festive program will be crowned with a concert on Red Square and gala fireworks.
A range of top-level multilateral contacts will take place on the eve of May 9 festivities. The Kremlin agenda specifies an informal meeting of the heads of state of the Commonwealth of Independent States and a session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council at the level of presidents.
President Almazbek Atambayev of Kyrgyzstan will attend the latter conference where his country’s future joining of the association will be discussed.
