Is a change of itinerary, including a visit to Kaliningrad, possible?

–1 vote
I wonder if you can give me some information. My son has a private visa to go to visit his wife's family in Russia this summer for the whole of July and August. On his application he only put down the name of the town his the family lives in (Ivanovo), but while he is in Russia his wife's family would also like to take him by plane from Moscow to Kaliningrad for ten days to visit some other relatives. Is it possible for him to go to places not on the itinerary, including Kaliningrad?
