MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov hopes that President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Milan due later this week will help understand better the current sentiment of Russia’s partners in Europe.
“We hope that during the visit to Milan we shall be able to get a better understanding of how our European partners feel,” Lavrov said at a meeting with members of the Association of European Businesses on Tuesday. “I am certain that the Russian president will explain to them once again what we are guided by in our actions.”
Lavrov said that Putin would “brief the colleagues on the latest developments.”
“I expect that this will help the soberly-minded people in the EU leadership to display strategic vision at last,” Lavrov said.
