Putin will not hold a meeting with the heads of foreign companies at SPIEF

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov announced the planned meetings of Vladimir Putin with the presidents of countries at SPIEF 2022, without specifying which leaders he is talking about. According to him, the United States can put pressure on them

At the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with foreign leaders, but their list has not been made public due to possible US pressure. This was stated in a conversation with TASS by the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov.

“In order not to give more work to American ambassadors, I will not announce anything now,” he said, explaining that the heads of US diplomatic missions around the world are putting pressure on the leadership of other states.

“We are expecting a very, very interesting plenary session,”— noted Peskov.

There will be no separate traditional meeting of Putin with the leadership of foreign companies and international investors at the forum. At the same time, Peskov added that he does not rule out the possibility of the president meeting with some foreign businessmen and investors.

The President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said earlier that he would accept participation in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

This year SPIEF will be held for the 25th time— from 15 to 18 June at the Expoforum Convention and Exhibition Center. Main theme: «New World— new opportunities». According to the organizers, it “reflects the global processes of change taking place in the world, leading to the formation of a new economic model”, and allows you to establish a dialogue “with all stakeholders”.
