BELBEK AIRPORT /Sevastopol, Crimea/, August 19. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin supported the suggestion from Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to appoint former Minister of Education and Sciences Dmitry Livanov the president’s envoy on trade and economic relations with Ukraine.
"Good, this is what we shall do," Putin said in response to the suggestion from the prime minister during a working meeting at the Belbek airport on Friday.
