Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday he plans to go to Moscow on May 9 to attend celebrations of the 75th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory in the Great Patriotic War (the Eastern Front during WWII where Russia fought against Nazi Germany), APA reports citing TASS.

"I am often asked: ‘Do you plan to attend the parade in Moscow? Of course. If no one comes from Belarus, who else would come? Obviously, no one will come from Ukraine," BelTA quoted him as saying.

At the same time, he recalled that Belarus would also celebrate this anniversary on May 9. "I have one problem: we will organize similar celebrations and we are thinking what can we do so that I could be there (in Moscow - TASS). I don’t know, maybe, because of this psychosis there [over the coronavirus infection] they might cancel these celebrations," Lukashenko noted. "As for us, we are not going to cancel anything."
