Apr 16, 2024

France will not invite Russian dictator Vladimir Putin to an international ceremony to mark the 80th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy on June 6.


This was stated in the statement of the organizers of the event, reports RBC-Ukraine with reference to Le Figaro.

The organization Mission Libération confirmed that a Russian delegation may be present at the ceremony commemorating the Allied landings in Normandy.

"Historically, France has always invited to the ceremony the countries whose contingents landed in Normandy. Such an invitation was also sent to Russia," one of the members of Mission Libération said in a comment.

He added that "unlike the Kremlin, France does not pursue a policy of historical revisionism."

The organization also emphasized that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin was not invited because of the war against Ukraine.

However, Mission Libération did not clarify anything about the possibility of other representatives of the Russian regime attending the event, in particular the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Sergey Lavrov.
