Putin will hold separate meetings with Sevastopol’s acting head Sergei Menyailo and Crimea’s acting Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov, presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Wednesday.
“They will discuss the functioning of urban and republican economies, energy supplies and other subsistence issues linked to the everyday life of these two regions of Russia,” Peskov said.
The meeting in Sevastopol, where Putin had arrived earlier in the day, was attended by all Security Council members.
“The security of the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol and the operation of law enforcement agencies were on the agenda,” Peskov said, adding that the foreign aspect of Crimea’s security enjoyed attention among other issues.
President Vladimir Putin arrived in Sevastopol on Wednesday for a meeting with members of the Russian Security Council.
The meeting will be held at the Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol, which is the first destination of his two-day trip to the peninsula.
On August 14 he will visit Yalta for a meeting with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, State Duma (lower house of parliament) Speaker Sergei Naryshkin and the heads of all Duma factions will take part in the meeting.
Putin will make a keynote speech, after which the deputies will be able to ask questions, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
The president will then take a tour of the Chekhov Museum in Yalta and meet with cultural workers to discus Crimea’s integration into Russia’s cultural environment.
This is Putin’s second trip to Crimea after its accession to Russia in March 2014. On May 9, the president watched a naval review and an air display in Sevastopol, having flown over there after the parade in Moscow’s Red Square.
