MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, chairman of the United Russia party, will meet with regional United Russia officials in Sochi on Thursday.
They are expected to discuss a number of pressing issues, a United Russia insider told Itar-Tass.
The premier regularly meets with Party activists in regions. The latest such meeting took place in the village of Listvyanka, Irkutsk region. Earlier, Medvedev travelled to the Smolensk and Yaroslavl regions, Yakutia and the Krasnoyarsk Territory to meet with his United Russia colleagues.
In May, the United Russia leader participated in a joint session of its Supreme and General Councils which the press dubbed "a mini-congress." In June, he received senior Party officials at his residence.
Medvedev joined United Russia on May 22, 2012, and was elected its chairman at the Party's 13th Congress on May 26, 2012, several weeks after his appointment as prime minister.
