MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. President Almazbek Atambayev of Kyrgyzstan will take part in the festivities in Moscow timed for the 70th anniversary of victory in World War II, President Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
All in all, the heads of state and government of about thirty countries have confirmed their plans to come to Moscow in the period of May 8 to May 10. The UN Secretary General and UNESCO’s Director General are also planning to come, Peskov said.
He made a reservation though that some of the top-rank invitees would not be able to attend the May 9 Victory Parade on Red Square. For instance, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, Germany’s Federal Chancellor Angela Merket, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, and Czech President Milos Zeman have notified the organizers of the event they will not be present there.
