Russia welcomes and highly values the decision of Indian President Pranab Kumar Mukherjee to attend the Victory Day celebrations in Moscow on May 9, Russian ambassador to India Alexander Kadakin said Thursday.

On Saturday, the Russian military parade will be held in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany and her allies, which lasted from June 1941 to May 1945.

 “Russia highly values and welcomes President P.K.Mukherjee’s participation in the celebrations of our victory in the Great Patriotic War against Nazism…,” the ambassador said in a statement.
“It is a telling gesture towards my country of such a long-time and tested friend, as Mr Mukherjee, and also a symbol of solidarity of the people of India in grateful remembrance of the 27 million lives my country laid on the altar of the Allied Victory,” he added.

Kadakin said also that Russia cherishes the important role India played in the World War II, and stated that all attempts to rewrite the real history of the war are "immoral."

Russia has invited a number of world leaders to attend the May 9 Victory Parade in Moscow.
This year's event – the biggest Russian military parade ever held – will be attended by some 25 foreign leaders.
