Carter Page, who served as an adviser to Donald Trump, arrived in Moscow to hold several meetings, Ria Novosti reported.
"I will meet with influential businessmen and thought leaders," Page said. He added that he will stay in Moscow until December 13th.
Trump announced Page's appointment as his adviser way back in March. A few months later, Page visited Moscow after receiving an invitation from the rector of the New Economic School, Shlomo Weber. According to The New Times, during Page's last visit, he met with the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Arkady Dvorkovich.
In the early 2000’s, Page worked in Merrill Lynch's Moscow office for three years. While working in the investment bank he was able to oversee Gazprom transactions as well as other energy companies’ transactions. Now, Page is a partner in the Global Energy Capital company, which engages with investments in energy projects.
