KRASNOYARSK, June 22 (RIA Novosti's Boris Ivanov) - Prince Michael of Kent arrived in Krasnoyarsk (Siberia) on Tuesday.

At a press conference he pointed out visible changes in Russia's life both in Moscow and far outside the capital, for instance, in Krasnoyarsk.

Today the prince and his people attended the Krasnoyarsk non-ferrous metallurgical and aluminum plants and met with the youth rugby team.

According to the prince, the recent visit to Krasnoyarsk by UK ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary to Russia Sir Roderic Lyne and his routine trip are a mere coincidence.

However, his compatriots attentively follow the developments in Russian provinces, the distinguished guest stressed. Journalists of Britain's 12 leading newspapers accompany Prince Michael. The prince is convinced that they will write positive reports on Krasnoyarsk.

He will leave Krasnoyarsk on Wednesday, June 23.

Prince Michael of Kent often visits Russia. He is the patron of the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce, which was founded in 1916 to boost bilateral trade relations. Its activities did not cease after the 1917 revolution.

Related through his grandmother Princess Nicholas of Greece, born Grand Duchess Helen Vladimirovna, to the Romanov dynasty, Prince Michael has always had a strong emotional attachment to Russia, which he first visited in 1992. Prince Michael attended a Russian language course in the Defense School of Languages. In 1968 Prince Michael qualified as a Military Interpreter.
