SEVASTOPOL, August 19. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is due to visit the Malakhov Kurgan memorial complex in Crimea on Wednesday to lay flowers at the Eternal Flame, the Kremlin press service has said.
The Russian leader is also scheduled to visit the Presidential Cadet Academy in Sevastopol.
Putin, who arrived in the Black Sea Peninsula on Monday for a working visit, told reporters earlier he would hold a meeting with security officials on Wednesday.
"Tomorrow we will have another working day here, we will talk to colleagues, the heads of security agencies, as is common to say, law enforcement agencies, with locals and federals. We will discuss issues that are within their competence," he said.
The president conducts such meetings relating to the Defence Ministry and national security issues on a regular basis. Such events are often held behind closed doors.
The Malakhov Kurgan was twice the scene of fierce battles to defend Sevastopol - during the Crimean War in 1854-1855 and in 1941-1942 during the Great Patriotic War, the Soviet campaign against Nazi Germany.
