President Putin to visit Armenia this week

Russian President Vladimir Putin is to make a two-day visit to Armenia starting Thursday, the presidency said.

Putin will hold talks with his Armenian counterpart, Robert Kocharian, and participate in a gala ceremony marking the start of the "Year of Russia" in Armenia, presidential spokesman Viktor Sogomonian said.
