MOSCOW, July 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will take part on Sunday in the festive events to mark Russia’s Navy Day in the city of Baltiysk in the Kaliningrad region, the Kremlin press service reported.
The Russian leader will attend the parade, which will be held in the water area of the Kaliningrad seaway canal.
Taking part in the parade will be the Admiral Gorshkov frigate, the Yury Ivanov communication vessel, which will fly Russia’s St.Andrew’s colors for the first time on Sunday.
