Welcome to the Chicago Popular News community. The subject of this news is Vladimir Putin is preparing for an extremely important speech on Friday
here are the details.
The Russian head of state will speak at the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), which is attended by world leaders and prominent representatives of business, but for obvious reasons this year will receive far fewer international guests.
Due to the absence of large Western participants, smaller countries as well as China have a key role to play. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov claimed that Western officials had put pressure on some participants to dissuade them from participating.
Vladimir Putin will also meet with media representatives in an interesting way that day, the portal notes. He will not make a statement to the world’s leading media, but will meet with representatives of the Russian media and war correspondents. Peskov explained all this by questioning the suitability of Western journalists for Russia.
