Russian President Vladimir Putin will soon visit the Crimea, the pre-visit is scheduled for Friday, said two people close to the Kremlin, and a source close to the presidential envoy in the southern Federal district. According to sources , the President can communicate with local officials and visit the youth camp “Tauris”, which is located near Sevastopol.
In a press-service of the Kremlin are unable to provide a prompt review. Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea Dmitry Polonsky declined to comment, redirecting the correspondent in a press-service of the President.
Crimea Putin traditionally visits in August. In 2014, he addressed members of the Federal Assembly and spoke with the artists. A year ago, he was immersed in a submersible to the bottom of the Black sea off the coast of the Peninsula.
Not Seliger, and Tavrida
President waiting in the camp “Tauris”, held in Crimea, the Federal Agency for youth Affairs with the support of the Kremlin’s management of public projects, to change for young Directors, producers and actors. In Russia 2016 is declared the year of Russian cinema, so the arrival of the head of state of this change is logical, says one of the interlocutors . Because of the importance of change even specially lengthened — instead of the standard seven days, it will last nine or just before the day of the alleged visit of the head of state.
“Meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is a huge motivation and incentive, a key event in the life of a young Russian. We are always happy to see our President on all of our youth”, — said the representative of Rosmolodezh. He, however, did not answer the question of whether there will arrive Putin and when possible visit.
According to the interlocutor in Rosmolodezh, the shift has already talked to the Director Yegor Konchalovsky and actor Mikhail Porechenkov. There are also General Director of “Russia 1” Anton Zlatopolsky, the General Director of movie company “Studio Trite” Leonid Vereshchagin, General producer and founder of the group of companies “white Media” Timur Weinstein.
Results for “Tauris” seven shifts, the latter will be held from August 20 to 24 for young regional journalists in partnership with the Russian popular front.
Visit to the “Tauris” will be the first for Putin. He regularly attends Kremlin youth camp, but still went first to “Seliger”, and then at its successor, camp “Territory” (held in the Vladimir region). Putin’s visit this year is not planned, says a source close to the organizing Committee of the camp.
The highest-ranking official, who visited this year the “Territory”, became Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. Trip the Prime Minister was in the center of a scandal after the Prime Minister about low salaries of teachers. He noted that the teaching is a calling, you can make money in the business. Then began collecting signatures for a petition on the early resignation of Medvedev, and the Kremlin said that someone specifically started against him a custom campaign.
Medvedev was the last high-ranking official who went to the Crimea. This trip also provoked a scandal and remember the phrase of the Prime Minister about lack of money for the indexation of pensions. “Just no money. Find the money, do indexing, ” he said. — You stay here, you all the best, good mood and health.”
“After that [resonated Medvedev’s statements on pensions] started talking about the fact that the Crimea is just one of the Russian regions, — said political analyst Konstantin Kalachev. But before the election we need to show that this is a special region, and to ensure there voting for any of the Russian party, which supported the joining of Crimea to Russia.”
After resignations and sabotage
The last time Putin visited Crimea in March, when he was inspecting the construction of Crimean bridge. After that, the Peninsula remained the focus of the press. At the end of July the President issued a decree abolished the Crimean Federal district and included it in the South of the district, and also replaced the Governor of Sevastopol, instead of Sergey Menyailo region headed by Dmitry Ovsyannikov.
On 10 August, the FSB reported on the prevention in the Crimea the attacks, which were allegedly prepared by the main intelligence Directorate of the defense Ministry of Ukraine. In the message security services have said that in the night of 6 to 7 August, the group of saboteurs was discovered in the city of Armyansk during a shootout with her killing an FSB officer and member of the defense Ministry. After that, Putin accused Kiev authorities in the “transition to terror.” However, the collected later, the security Council took no decisions on the response to Ukraine, reported “Vedomosti”.
After the scandal with the saboteurs Putin wants his visit to demonstrate that the authorities can ensure the safety of all campers, points to another meaning of the visit Kalachev.
A source close to the leadership of Sebastopol, said that the President’s trip is more concerned with the recent personnel changes. “We need to ensure that all working time was rebuilt, and run creative mode,” he says.
