ATHENS (Sputnik) — Greece President Prokopis Pavlopoulos will represent his country at the May 9 Moscow Victory Day celebration, Greek TV channel Antenna said on Thursday.

Russia sent an invitation to Pavlopoulos in late March, shortly after the March 25 Greek Independence Day celebration, according to the news outlet. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, currently visiting Moscow, has also been invited.

On April 4, Kremlin Chief of Staff Sergei Ivanov said representatives of at least 25 states had agreed to attend the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow.

A full list of the participants in the events devoted to commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Nazi Germany surrender and the end of World War II will be announced by the end of April.

Several European leaders, including European Council President Donald Tusk, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron declined invitations to join the Victory Day events, citing Russia's alleged involvement in the Ukrainian crisis.

In February, Ivanov remarked that Russia would survive if other countries did not attend the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow.
