MOSCOW, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. About 60 world leaders are expected to take part in the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games in Russia’s Sochi, Russian president’s aide Yuri Ushakov told journalists on Friday.
“According to the latest data, about 60 heads of state and government [will take part in the opening ceremony],” he said, adding that a number of bilateral meetings were planned with some these leaders. “I think there will be held on the move,” he noted.
