MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will arrive in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi on Friday to meet in the coming days with some foreign leaders, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
Putin is due to hold a meeting with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on Friday. The sides will discuss "bilateral relations and integration issues," Peskov said.
"The president will continue to work in Sochi on Monday. The visit of Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa will take place. Talks in narrow and broad formats will be held, and they will be rather comprehensive," Peskov said.
Putin is not planning to visit the Sochi Olympic venues this time. On Sunday, the president will address athletes, medalists and fans and congratulate everyone with the Olympics anniversary and the Day of Winter Sports.
Ahead of his flight to Sochi on Friday, Putin is scheduled to hold a traditional meeting with the permanent members of the Russian Security Council in Moscow, Peskov said.
