Stock footage featuring relationship between Moscow and Washington, including unique footage of Russian officials hosting American leaders
Compared to the delegations of previous years, the list was really impressive: over fifty foreign leaders, as well as six heads of international associations and organizations. Among them are US President Bill Clinton, British Prime Minister John Major, Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, French President François Mitterrand, Chinese President Jiang Zemin and others.
The list of leaders who accepted the invitation was not limited to former allies in the anti-Hitler coalition – for example, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl became a special guest at the event. A visit to Moscow was also made by UN Secretary General Boutros Ghali and NATO Secretary General Javier Solana.
