U.S. President Donald Trump will not be coming to Moscow for Victory Day celebrations on May 9, the Kremlin said on March 10.
Russia has repeatedly invited Trump to visit Moscow on the 75th anniversary of victory in World War II—the nations most important holiday. Trump said last year he appreciated the invitation, but wasnt sure if he could go as the celebration falls “right in the middle of political season.”
“Via diplomatic channels, we have received information that the [U.S.] president will not be coming,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Tuesday, adding that it remains unclear who will represent the United States on Victory Day in Moscow.
Peskov didnt give a reason for Trumps refusal to come.
