Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev will make an official visit to Russia on May 8–9 to mark Victory Day, his spokesperson Ruslan Zheldibai said on Monday.

According to Zheldibai, Tokayev will join Vladimir Putin on Tuesday to take part in Moscow’s parade celebrating the 78th anniversary of the Soviet victory in the Second World War. The Kazakh leader will also reportedly visit the Rzhev Memorial to the Soviet Soldier in Russia’s Tver region as well as a mass grave in the Moscow region where one of his uncles was buried after serving in the war.

Earlier on Monday, Russian state media reported that Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has accepted Putin’s invitation to go to Moscow for the holiday. Previously, Kyrgyz President Sadyr Japarov was the only foreign leader reported to be planning to spend May 9 in Russia.
