MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will not go to Davos, Switzerland, for the economic forum, and the person to head the Russian delegation will be decided later, Russian cabinet press-secretary Natalia Timakova told TASS on Friday.
“The premier will not go. There is no decision yet who will head the Russian delegation,” she said.
The Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday that the president’s schedule for January did not include a trip to Davos.
Commenting on media reports about an invitation sent to Vladimir Putin to participate in the world economic forum, Peskov told TASS: “There is no such trip in the schedule. No preparations are made for it.” “I do not know who will represent Russia at the Davos forum,” he added.
Russian delegations have regularly participated in the Davos World Economic Forum since 1987. Putin was in Davos in 2009 when he was prime minister.
The Russian delegation was headed by Vice-Premier Arkady Dvorkovich in the winter of 2014.
The World Economic Forum was founded in 1971. Known politicians, businessmen, experts and journalists are invited to annual meetings in Davos to discuss key world political, economic and social problems.
