MOSCOW, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree to restore the Nakhimov Naval School in Sevastopol and to create a presidential cadet school in the Republic of Crimea.
Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has submitted a document to this effect to President Putin.
“Historically the Nakhimov Naval School has functioned in Sevastopol,” the defense minister said.
