The President will take part in the opening of the Moscow–St Petersburg Motorway (M11) and will hold a meeting on how the implementation of the investment project to build the Moscow–St Petersburg Motorway (M11) influences the socioeconomic development of the Russian regions.
The new road is intended for transit traffic, including intraregional, while the existing M10 Highway (Russia) will serve local traffic, which will ensure a high-speed link between Moscow and St Petersburg. The total length of the motorway will be 669 kilometres. The construction of the M11 is based on the principles of public-private partnership with inclusion in the provisions of the agreements made of the contractors’ investment obligations to co-finance the works in progress.
On the same day, Vladimir Putin will visit the Admiralty Shipyards, where he will examine the large submarine Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and ships under construction – the Ivan Papanin ice-class patrol ship and the Viktor Chernomyrdin ship; he will also take part in the ceremony of laying down the Nikolai Zubov ice-class patrol ship.
The President is also expected to meet with President of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Alexander Čeferin and President of the World Economic Forum Klaus Martin Schwab.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the sambo section, which Anatoly Rakhlin took charge of in 1969, Vladimir Putin will visit the Turbostroitel judo club, where he will talk with club veterans and athletes.
The President will also attend the opening ceremony of the monument to writer and public figure Daniil Granin.
