MOSCOW, April 18. /TASS/. Celebrations devoted to Victory Day will take place in more than 100 countries around the world, said Alexander Nurizade, director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s department for work with compatriots abroad, during a press conference with TASS on Monday dedicated to the launch of the international humanitarian project dubbed "For the Rights of Compatriots".
"I'm sure that May 9 will be celebrated everywhere, in all countries throughout the world. In any case, according to the information that we have now, there will be different events in more than a hundred countries, but they will be dedicated to Victory Day," he said.
"Many countries are making efforts to put their ideological basis under our original, grassroots "Immortal Regiment" campaign, on the same days when we are going to hold other events where face-to-face or an online presence is possible. There will be an attempt to hold their actions in tandem under other slogans, it is clear what terms they use. We will fight against this," the diplomat added.
