MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will depart to St. Petersburg to meet President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbaev on Sunday and take part in summits of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) on Monday.
Putin and Nazarbaev will discuss current bilateral and multilateral issues.
