“Next week the Russian president will go to Italy for the Asia-Europe Meeting at the summit level. There are plans for meetings with Western partners. The Ukrainian theme will be in focus,” Ushakov said.

The ASEM summit in Milan will gather the leaders of Germany, France, Britain and European Commission officials. Ushakov said that at this point he was unable to name all foreign leaders Putin would meet with. A rendezvous with Italy’s new prime minister is possible, Ushakov said.
Putin received an official invitation to the ASEM summit, he added.
