The Czech president is the only EU head of state to have confirmed attendance at a WWII memorial parade in Moscow on 9 May, the website EUObserver.com reported on Thursday, adding that the Czech head of state is a sympathiser of Vladimir Putin. The German chancellor Angela Merkel has declined Vladimir Putin’s invitation to attend the event marking the 70th anniversary of the defeat of the Nazis due to tensions over Russia’s actions in Ukraine. According to EUObserver, other EU states to boycott the event include Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland. US president Barack Obama has also said he won’t be attending.
