At least 22 heads of states have already confirmed their intent to arrive at the event to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. For the most part, these are the leaders of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Asian countries.
Russia celebrates Victory Day on May 9, whereas it is commemorated on May 8 in Europe and America. In 2015, military parades will be held in dozens of Russian cities, including Moscow.
