In the Big Game program on Channel One, he said that so far no decisions had been made to postpone the festivities, to postpone the Victory Parade or to postpone the Immortal Regiment.
Peskov explained that such decisions will be made later, taking into account the development of the epidemiological situation.
"But I can say one thing: no one should have doubts that the Victory Day parade and the celebration of Victory Day will be necessary - I don’t know whether it will be May 9 or later, but it will be necessary," Peskov said.
Meanwhile, the Russian Defense Ministry has repeatedly stated that preparations for the Victory Parade are ongoing.
As we reported before, Russia is holding rehearsals for its Victory Day parade, scheduled for 9 May despite the coronavirus crisis, as the Kremlin resists canceling a patriotic holiday with major political significance
The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has invited a large number of the world political elite, including French President Macron, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. The event is a significant historical landmark for Russia and a coveted photo opportunity to claim Putin’s re-emergence from political isolation in the west.
