President Aleksandar Vucic accepted the invitation to attend the Moscow Victory Day Parade this month, at the invitation of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
Vucic met with Russian Ambassador in Belgrade Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko on Sunday and confirmed his attendance in the event, stressing that he was “proud of the fact that the Serb and Russian people, both devoted to the libertarian tradition, were on the same side of the law and justice during the WWII.”
“It is a great honour to attend the 75th anniversary of the victory against fascism. We won the freedom in WWII owing to help of the Red Army and Serbia objects the attempts to revise history. We will fight for the truth to survive,” he underlined.
Vucic also expressed his sympathies for the coronavirus victims in Russia and thanked for the solidarity that Putin expressed by sending the medical assistance to Serbia.
