Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in the annexed Crimea to take part in two events.

"Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in the Crimea, where he will hold the meeting of the Russian Security Council and take part in the Tavrida Youth Educational Forum," TASS Russian news agency reports.

As reported, at the previous Security Council meeting on August 11 Putin discussed the additional measures to ensure safety of citizens and infrastructure of Crimea due to the so-called "prevention of the terrorist attack on the peninsula by the Russian special services."

Putin has visited Crimea at least five times since Russia occupied the peninsula.
