Russian President Vladimir Putin is still invited to D-day commemorations in France on 6 June despite the West's opposition to his policy towards Ukraine, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Tuesday.

"President Putin has been invited ... and for the moment he remains invited," Fabius told Europe 1 radio.

But Fabius said he had cancelled a planned trip to Moscow Tuesday with Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian to meet their Russian counterparts.

His ministry earlier said the trip would depend on the "evolving situation" in Ukraine, where a referendum, declared illegal by Kiev, in Crimea voted to join Russia.
