Russian Ambassador to Armenia Ivan Volynkin expressed his disappointment at the absence of a number of foreign diplomats from the reception dedicated to the Victory Day. The reception was organized at the Russian Embassy in Armenia.
Ambassador Volynkin congratulated the veterans and the guests on the Victory Day and pointed out that on May 9 the whole world marks the victory over fascism. In this light, the absence of a number of foreign diplomats looks strange at least, he said.
To note, mostly the Western countries' diplomats were absent from the event dedicated to the Victory Day. It is obvious that they wanted to demonstrate Moscow their attitude to Russia's actions in Ukraine.
