At least 25 foreign leaders plan to attend Victory Day parade in Moscow - Kremlin

Twenty-five foreign leaders and heads of international organizations have confirmed they will attend the Victory Parade on Moscow\'s Red Square on May 9, presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov told the media on Saturday.

"I can't give you the final figure, and no one can. Some leaders remain undecided, so we will only be able to announce who will attend - and we will definitely do so - in early May. To date, 25 state leaders and heads of international organizations have confirmed they will attend. Foreign armies will be represented by ten parade blocks as a minimum," Ivanov said.

"What matters most is that Victory Day is our national holiday. Normal people usually invite their friends and close circle to share a holiday. Some will come, other will not. Russia will accept any option. It is our national holiday," Ivanov said
