MOSCOW, June 6. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to visit Finland, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
Commenting on Finnish media reports that Putin may visit Finland in July, Peskov said: "Yes, preparations are being made for this visit. When there is final understanding on dates and timeframe (of the visit), we will make an official statement on this."
According to Peskov, the timetable of Putin’s foreign visits and contacts will remain tight in the near future.
"The schedule has been rather tight lately, over the past few months, and it will remain so in the foreseeable future," Kremlin said.
About contacts with and visits to European countries Peskov said that their intensity stemmed from the vast mutual interests and the need for coordinating action.
