Earlier that same day, the President will take part in a ceremony unveiling a cross raised in memory of Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich in the Kremlin.
The memorial cross was paid for by public donations and raised near the Nikolskaya Tower in 1908 following the murder of Governor General of Moscow Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich in 1905. The memorial was demolished in 1918.
Acting on Mr Putin’s instruction, the Russian Military Historical Society and the Foundation for Revival of Traditions of Compassion and Charity St Elizabeth – St Sergius Educational Society carried out the work to restore the memorial.
