Commemorative events marking the outbreak of the Second world war, held annually on the Westerplatte Peninsula near Gdansk, where 1 September 1939 at 4:45 am began the invasion of Nazi Germany into Poland.
The Polish foreign Ministry stressed that the final decision on the guest list will be received by President of Poland Andrzej Duda. Would the President of Russia will respond to the possible offer of Polish leadership, obviously, will depend on the level of Russian-Polish relations.
In recent years, bilateral cooperation has not the best period. So, in 2015, the Polish authorities did not invite the President of Russia Vladimir Putin on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, and then President Bronislaw Komorowski refused to travel to Moscow for the celebrations in honor of the 70th anniversary of Victory in the great Patriotic war.
