MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Slovenia on July 28, Slovenian Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec said on Tuesday.
"This year we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Russian Chapel that was erected in memory of 300 Russian military prisoners who died in an avalanche during the construction of a military road," Erjavec said at the meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. "One of the bloodiest fronts of the First World War was on the Soca River, and many people died there. We in Slovenia are very glad that Russian President Vladimir Putin will come to this memorial event on July 28," he added.
"This means that history ties our peoples with strong bonds," the foreign minister noted.
Lavrov noted in his turn that Russia appreciates the attention of the Slovenian leadership to preserving memorials to those who died in the fight against Nazism. "An important monument to Russian soldiers who fought in the First and Second World Wars will be opened soon. We thank you for such attention. A traditional event devoted to the Russian Chapel will take place in the summer. We are preparing for joint celebrations of its 100th anniversary," Lavrov concluded.
