“There will be a trip that will be dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the victory of the Red Army in the Battle of Stalingrad,” said Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Russian leader.

According to him, such a trip is "expected on Thursday."

On January 18, Putin laid flowers at the monuments in St. Petersburg on the 80th anniversary of the breaking of the siege of Leningrad.

The President visited the Nevsky Piglet memorial complex, as well as the Piskarevskoye cemetery.

On the way to the Motherland monument, along the 300-meter alley from the Eternal Flame, the president also laid flowers at one of the mass graves where his brother Viktor, who died in the blockade at a young age in the winter of 1942, is buried.
