NIZHNY NOVGOROD, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has arrived in Nizhny Novgorod, where together with President Dmitry Medvedev he will participate in the celebration marking National Unity Day. The president has already arrived here from Cannes, where he participated in the G20 summit.
Medvedev and Putin will lay flowers at the monument to Minin and Pozharsky. The memorial, a copy of the monument in Moscow, is created by sculptor Zurab Tsereteli. It was placed on National Unity Square in Nizhny Novgorod a few years ago.
Traditionally, the president will present state awards to foreign citizens for great contribution to the consolidation of friendship, cooperation and the development of cultural ties with Russia.
The Orders of Friendship will be presented to Estonian singer Anne Veski, chairman of the Russian historical society in Australia Pyotr Tatarinov and member of the board of directors of AvtoVAZ Christian Esteve (France). After the ceremony, Medvedev and Putin will give a reception marking the holiday.
The president and the premier will also visit the Nizhny Novgorod fair, a modern exhibition complex, one of Russia's five leading exhibition centres, and then go to the Gorky auto-making plant.
