The President will visit the Kaliningrad underground gas storage facility – the country's first sealed natural gas reservoir created in deep sedimentary rock salt. The head of state will take part in the opening of a gas receiving station and a floating storage regasification platform via videoconference.

Gazprom’s gas supply alternative, which distributes liquefied natural gas by sea, will increase the energy security of the Kaliningrad Region, given its unique location.

On the same day, Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting on the creation of cultural, educational and museum centres in Vladivostok, Kaliningrad, Kemerovo and Sevastopol. The plan is to discuss the structure and functioning of these centres with Government members and cultural and art workers.

The President set the goal to create theatre, concert, museum and educational centres in the Russian regions in his Address to the Federal Assembly in 2018, with details codified in the Presidential Executive Order On National Goals and Strategic Objectives of the Russian Federation Through to 2024.
