WASHINGTON, December 23. /TASS/. Russia's invitation to President Barack Obama to attend festivities on the occasion of the 70th anniversary since VE-Day that will be held in Moscow next May has not been dismissed, Celeste Wallander, the chief presidential adviser on Russia in the White House staff said on Monday night in a brief conversation with TASS.
The invitation was being scrutinized, she said, adding that it was not clear yet when the final decision might be taken.
White House officials answered a question about the invitation earlier by saying they had no announcements for the time being on any possible trips by the President to Russia.
Russian President's aide Yuri Ushakov said in Moscow earlier on the same day the Kremlin had invited Obama to attend the VE-Day festivities as the leader of a nation that used to be a member of the anti-Hitler coalition.
