SOCHI, May 15. /TASS/. Saturday will not be a day off for Russian President Vladimir Putin who plans to hold a final government meeting on defence-related issues in Sochi to sum up the results of this week’s meetings on that matter, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists.
Apart from that, the president plans to visit a children’s educational centre that is being established at the Azimuth hotel in the Imereti Valley. "It is his personal initiative, the president’s pet project meant for talented children who will be offered classes in three basic areas: science, arts and sports," Peskov said, adding that the president is in the habit of "using his stay in Sochi to call at this centre" to see the state of things there.
According to the presidential press secretary, Putin most probably will attend the final match of the Night Hockey League on Saturday. "He might even hit the ice to play in a gala match or he will be just a spectator. Let us wait and see," Peskov said.
The Russian president has stayed in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi since May 12. Over this period, he held a series of government meetings on defence-related subjects, met with visiting U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Abkhazian President Raul Khadzhimbam. Apart from that, he accepted resignation of the governors of Russia’s Omsk, Irkutsk, Leningrad and Kostroma regions and the Kamchatka Territory and appointed them acting heads of regions till the next elections in September.
