Prime Minister Medvedev arrives in Crimea

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Sevastopol Governor Sergei Menyailo laid flowers to the 1941-42 Sevastopol defense memorial in Sevastopol on Sunday which marks Sevastopol Day.


The working part of Medvedev's visit to the Republic of Crimea is beginning on Monday. Medvedev will chair a meeting on the development of small businesses in Crimea and visit the international children's holiday center Artek to join celebrations of its 90th anniversary.

Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergei Aksyonov earlier said that the Crimean government was planning to discuss mobile phone services in Crimea with Medvedev.

"Mobile phone coverage is too bad in Crimea. I earlier wrote a letter to Dmitry Medvedev, saying that telephone services have been really bad from all sides, with ruptures occurring all the time. It's next to impossible to get through on one's way from Simferopol to Yalta. Among the issues to be discussed with the prime minister is a request to the federal telecommunications ministry to install quality mobile telephone service in Crimea," Aksyonov told reporters in Simferopol on June 9.
