KRASNOYARSK, February 28./TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, where he will chair on Wednesday a session that will look into preparations for the 2019 Winter Universiade to be held in Krasnoyarsk.
Putin has arrived from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, that was the last stopover on his Central Asian tour, in which the president also visited Kazakh Almaty and Tajik Dushanbe. The trip was timed to mark the 25th anniversary of Russia’s diplomatic relations with Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
According to the Kremlin press service, the president will also visit the Academy of Biathlon regional sports training center and will meet with winners of the 2017 Winter Universiade in Almaty.
A recent scandal involving two Russian bandy clubs’ bizarre self-goal match last Sunday will not be on the agenda of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to the East Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
The Russian as well as international media sparked public interest following the Russian Bandy Super League’s match in the northern city of Arkhangelsk on Sunday with the game ending 11-9 for local Baikal-Energiya against Irkutsk’s local club, Vodnik.
The match results, however, were later cancelled as both teams put a total of 20 goals into their own nets in the second half of the game following a scoreless first half.
"There are no plans on the agenda for discussing this issue," Peskov told journalists ahead of Putin’s visit to Krasnoyarsk. "This is obviously not connected with the visit of the president."
