Macedonian president, George Ivanov will participate in the military parade that will take place in Moscow on May 9, on the day of victory against fascism. But this day has sparked debates in the international plan, due to the conflict in Ukraine and many West European leaders have rejected their invitation.

President’s Ivanov cabinet has confirmed his participation in Moscow, as according to the cabinet, this decision is not in violation with strategic priorities of FYROM for accession in the NATO and EU.

“President Ivanov has always followed open policies toward everyone”, declared the President’s office, confirming his participation in this ceremony, which will be held on May 9, on the day of victory against fascism.

A part of west European countries, including Albania, will not participate in this event, due to Russia’s intervention in Ukraine.

This message has been conveyed by the European Union and USA, who have recommended a boycott of this ceremony. /ibna/
