MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Vladimir Putin will chair the first meeting of the newly-created presidential council on the economic modernization and innovation development on October 24, the Kremlin press service reported on Tuesday.
“The agenda of the first meeting of the council features two issues.
