Russia didn't invite officials from unfriendly countries to victory parade, diplomat says 

MOSCOW, May 9, 2024 (BSS/TASS) - Moscow did not send out invitations to the 
Victory Day parade to ambassadors and officials of unfriendly countries, 
Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

When asked whether ambassadors of unfriendly countries were invited to the 
Victory Day parade, she answered in the negative.

"No, unfriendly countries will not be invited to the parade for a third 
straight year. They have not been invited since 2022 because the regimes in 
these countries are pursuing - let's formulate it as an unfriendly policy; 
this is a term that was introduced - but in fact they are pursuing an 
aggressive policy toward our country. They formulate it as inflicting 
strategic defeat. For our part, we formulate it as hybrid warfare," the 
diplomat said in an interview with TASS.

She said veteran organizations in unfriendly countries weren't affected by 
the decision not to invite officials.
