Head of the EU Delegation to Russia Vygaudas Usackas will represent the European Union at the May 9 events in Moscow in the absence of EU leaders.
"The EU Delegation to Russia confirms that neither European Council President Tusk or Commission President Juncker or European Parliament President Schulz will be coming to Moscow for the 9 May celebrations. They will be participating in the events commemorating the end of the WWII in the EU member states," Soren Liborius, press secretary of the Head of the EU Delegation to Russia told Interfax.
"Therefore, on 9 May in Moscow, the EU will be represented by Ambassador Usackas, Head of the EU Delegation to Russia. We have already informed the Russian side accordingly and we expect the invitation to arrive shortly," Liborius said.
