Leaders mark Auschwitz liberation 70 years on without Putin
OSWIECIM, Poland - Holocaust survivors and world leaders are preparing to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Soviet Red Army, but Russian President Vladimir Putin will not be among those present.
Poland apparently snubbed Putin, failing to send him an invitation. Poland's government is extremely critical of Russian actions in Ukraine. The Russian delegation will be led by Sergei Ivanov, Putin's chief of staff.
Among the leaders to attend are the presidents of Germany and Austria, as well as French President Francois Hollande and others.
