Presidents from what all countries ?
Why will the Presidents from Lithuania and Estonia won't come ?
Some background info. would help, is there some kind of Cold War going on between those countries and Russia ?
All I know is they were part of the Soviet Union U.S.S.R. and now the CIS.

I guess it is because in their minds is more fresh Stalinīs repression than Naziīs.Remember that soviet troops left Baltic nation in the 90s

Uh, they had their own country before Stalin swallowed it up. So they don't want to go to the celebration. So what? Why sour relations with them over not wanting to go to a parade? I think there's things of bigger consequence.

yup, and it lasted for 20 years. I dont think that erecting monuments to nazis, and not going to celebration which comemorates victory over nazis is realy cool.

The post war Soviet occupation implemented repression and genocide against the Latvians. One hundred and twenty thousand Latvian inhabitants were imprisoned or deported to Soviet concentration (GULAG) camps. One hundred and thirty thousand took refuge from the Soviet army by fleeing to the West. On March 25, 1949, 43,000 rural residents were deported to Siberia in a sweeping repressive action. Until the 90s soviet troops stayed there, I understand that they do not like russians very much. Until the 90s soviet troops stayed there, I think they have soviet represion to fresh in their memory for going to Moscow and shake hands with them.

Could it be that the oppression of these countries under Uncle Joe Stalin might have something to do with the decision?

It's their right to go or not to go. Whether Moscow likes it or not.
