BISHKEK, September 17. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is finishing his visit to Bishkek on Saturday. The last day will be devoted to the bilateral agenda. Putin will meet with Kyrgyzstan’s President Almazbek Atambayev in the morning and discuss developing trade and cooperation between the two countries, including in the context of Kyrgyzstan’s membership in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
In particular, the sides are expected to discuss separate aspects of Russian support for Kyrgyzstan’s adaptation to EAEU’s rules. With this aim, Moscow will allocate $200 million to Bishkek in several stages.
Among other topics on the agenda will be Russian-Kyrgyzstani cooperation in the spheres of energy and investment, including through mechanisms of a joint fund with an authorized capital of $500 million. Twenty projects with a total worth of over $113 million are currently being implemented in Kyrgyzstan with this fund’s participation.
Together with leaders of other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Putin will then lay wreaths to the Ata Beyit Memorial and to the Great Patriotic War memorial in Atambayev’s native settlement of Arashan.
At the end of the day, the Russian president will take part in the celebration of Atambayev’s 60th birthday. Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov told journalists earlier that Putin plans to present several gifts to the Kyrgyzstani president.
