ANAPA, Black Sea area, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Bad weather conditions have forced Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to postpone a trip to the southern Russian town of Krymsk, which turned into a scene of disastrous flooding this summer and is undergoing a major rebuild to eliminate the aftermaths of the calamity.
“Weather conditions in the region /of the Black Sea port city of Novorossiysk – Itar-Tass/ are extremely complicated today and that’s why the President decided to put it off,” Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said. “A rescheduled date will be appointed shortly.”
Friday saw low overcast cloudiness and heavy rainfall in Krymsk. Reporters from the so-called Kremlin pool, who were supposed to cover the President’s trip, did not manage to get to the town either, as the helicopter carrying their party had to land in the airport of the regional capital Krasnodar.
