Putin summons Russian billionaires to meeting in Kremlin

Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with the top representatives of Russian business next week, presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

“The meeting will take place before New Year, but not this week,” the Kremlin spokesperson said.

Putin frequently meets with major business owners. One such meeting took place on December 21 last year. At the time, the Russian president asked participants – around 60 of the most important Russian businessmen – to sum up the year and to discuss the issues that were important for the state and the business community.

In addition to these discussions, Putin also meets with Russian and foreign businessmen at economic forums, business association conventions, and when foreign leaders visit Russia.
