MOSCOW, May 4. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier will meet in Volgograd in south Russia on May 7 to discuss bilateral and international issues, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

During his working trip to Russia, the German foreign minister "will visit the hero city of Volgograd where he will honor the memory of those who died in the struggle against fascism during World War II," the ministry said in a statement.

The Russian and German foreign ministers are expected to visit the Mamayev Kurgan dominant height overlooking the city of Volgograd, the scene of Soviet troops’ fierce fighting against Nazi forces during the Stalingrad Battle in World War Two, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said.

The German foreign minister and his Russian counterpart will lay wreathes at the Monument to Stalingrad Battle heroes on the Mamayev Kurgan height, the ministry said.

"A trip is also planned to visit the war memorial in the village of Rossoshki devoted to Soviet soldiers who died in the Stalingrad Battle and the burial place of German soldiers located nearby," the ministry said.

"As part of the visit, the foreign ministers from both countries will hold talks to discuss topical bilateral and international issues and will also visit the Music Against War international festival involving the participation of symphony orchestras from Volgograd and Osnabrueck [Germany]," the ministry said.
