On June 1, the President will visit the Dima Rogachev Federal Research Centre of Paediatric Haematology, Oncology and Immunology, the largest specialised high-technology research and treatment facility for children suffering from haematology, oncology and immunology disorders. Vladimir Putin was personally involved in overseeing the construction of the centre. The decision to create the clinic was taken in 2005 after the President met with a boy suffering from leukaemia, Dima Rogachev, in whose honour the centre was named.
The President will also visit the Federal Perinatal Centre, a new unit within the Research Centre for Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Perinatology. The centre is an innovative clinical research and education complex specialised in helping women across the country suffering from the most complex pregnancy pathologies, as well as developmental care and treatment for infants born in the most critical conditions.
On the same day, Vladimir Putin will present in the Kremlin the Order of Parental Glory to parents of multiple children. This year, awards will go to families from Khabarovsk, Altai and Krasnodar territories, Kaliningrad, Sverdlovsk, Tver and Samara regions, as well as Crimea and Ingushetia.
The order is awarded to parents (adoptive parents) who are bringing up or have brought up seven children or more while providing adequate healthcare, education, physical, spiritual and moral education for their adopted children. The Order of Parental Glory was established by a Presidential Executive Order signed in May 2008.
In addition, on June 1 Vladimir Putin will attend the Green Theatre at VDNH [the Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy], where a ceremony to launch the volunteer programme for the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be held. It will be one of the key events in preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which Russia will host, and the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.
