Putin says ‘not a problem’ not to be invited to D-Day anniversary

SAINT PETERSBURG, June 6, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Russian President Vladimir
Putin on Thursday said it was “not a problem” that he was not invited to the
75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in northern France, attended by other
world leaders.

“We also don’t invite everyone to every event. Why should I be invited
everwhere?” he said of the memorial at which US President Donald Trump spoke
along with French leader Emmanuel Macron.
