Peskov: Kyrgyzstan’s President to attend Victory Day celebrations in Moscow

President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev will take part in the festivities in Moscow timed for the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Second World War, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.


Peskov said that the heads of state and government of about 30 countries, as well as the UN Secretary General and UNESCO’s Director General, have confirmed their plans to come to Moscow.

He made a reservation though that some of the invitees would not be able to attend the May 9 Victory Parade. Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, Germany’s Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and Czech President Milos Zeman have notified the organizers of the event that they will not be present there.
