MOSCOW, January 2 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed the law that will allow foreign businessmen to obtain Russian business visa valid for five years, the Kremlin website reports. The law was passed by the State Duma lower house of parliament on December 19 and approved by the Federation Council upper house on December 26, 2012.
