Trump says he might attend Russia's May Day parade

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he was considering attending Russia's May 9 Victory Day commemorative events after President Vladimir Putin extended an invitation.


Trump says he might attend Russia's May Day parade

"I appreciate the invitation.

It is right in the middle of political season, so I'll see if I can do it, but I would love to go if I could," Trump told reporters before departing the White House for campaign-related events.

Putin presides over an annual parade to commemorate the Soviet Union's World War Two victory over Nazi Germany, but the Kremlin has said next year's 75th anniversary would be marked with great pomp.

Trump called it "a very big deal celebrating the end of the war." Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was cited by RIA news agency as saying on Thursday that Putin's invitation to his U.S. counterpart to attend Victory Day in Moscow had been "received with interest," but there had not yet been any reply from the White House.

While U.S.-Russia relations have hit a low point after American intelligence agencies concluded that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump, the two leaders have maintained what appears to be a good relationship.
