"Mr. President has received an invitation to visit Moscow on May 9, 2015 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Victory over fascism. He accepted this invitation with gratitude," Jiri Ovcacek said.
In 2015, military parades will be held in 26 Russian cities to mark the 70th anniversary of the Victory over the Nazis in World War II. About 14,000 members of the Russian armed forces, 194 tanks and 150 planes and helicopters are expected to participate in the Victory Parade on the Red Square in Moscow next year.
Invitations to attend the Victory Parade in Moscow have been sent to a number of world leaders. On December 22 Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov said that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may join the celebrations. The same day the United States' National Security Council spokesman told Sputnik news agency that US President Barack Obama had no plans to attend the Moscow event.
