Answering a question of journalists, whether can be expected at the parade of Ukrainian politicians, such as the head of the political Council of the party “Opposition platform For life”, Viktor Medvedchuk, Peskov said: “I am confident that if someone actually wanted to attend this extremely important from the point of view and symbolism, and the current time, and important to the world a memorial of the event, they will do it. Still, 75 years of Victory is the date that unites our peoples.”
Who among the Ukrainian politicians received an invitation to the Kremlin, Peskov did not specify.
A military parade was to be held on may 9, but because of the epidemic of the coronavirus , it was moved on 24 June. The Russian authorities sent invitations to the event dedicated to the 75-th anniversary of the Victory to many foreign leaders and representatives of international organizations. Their participation in the may 9 parade, in particular, confirmed the presidency of France, Czech Republic, Serbia, Bulgaria and several former Soviet countries, as well as the UN Secretary-General, antónio Guterres.
According to the foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation, his participation in the military parade in Moscow on 24 June confirmed the leaders of 12 States. Peskov said that President Vladimir Zelensky was not invited because Ukraine “is not signaled his desire to share the joy of Victory”.
