Mr Cichocki added that this will be a recommendation of the Foreign Ministry for the office of the Polish President Andrzej Duda, which is the organiser of the ceremony. He said that it will be the president, who will decide about the guest list and the formula of the ceremony.

President Duda said on Tuesday that the invitations for the 80th anniversary of the start of WWII will be sent to the global leaders, especially those which took part in the war on the Allied side, including the President of the US Donald Trump.

He emphasised that the invitations have not been sent yet. Krzysztof Szczerski, the Presidential Chief of Staff said earlier this week that it will be done by the end of the month.

On Tuesday, the Polish tabloid newspaper “Fakt” reported that the office of the President is “doing all that is possible” to convince Donald Trump to come to Poland to this event.
