Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin arrived in St.Petersburg on Monday night for a working trip. He is expected to attend the presentation of a film, "Learning Judo Wrestling Together with V. V. Putin".

Putin arrived there immediately after visiting Minsk. However, on Tuesday, the day of his 56th birthday, Putin is scheduled to have a no less intensive working programme. Early in the morning Putin intends to call at St Petersburg Humanitarian University of Trade Unions. He is also to attend the 77th session of the Interpol General Assembly.

Next point on the Premier`s working programme may be probably viewed as being more appropriate to birthday marking. Vladimir Putin is expected to tour a new private-owned film studio, the RVS-St Petersburg, where he will watch the process of filming a television programme. Following that, the Head of the Cabinet will turn to important government affairs and hold a meeting dealing with the development of domestic cinematography. The meeting in question is to take place in one of the film studio`s pavilions.

Vladimir Putin, in a talk to journalists, had acknowledged at one time that usually he does not arrange for any official celebrations on his birthday. The present 56th birthday, in all probability, will be no exception in this respect either.
