The decision of the organizers of the economic forum in Davos not to invite the owner of group “Renova” Viktor Vekselberg, co-owner “Rusala” Oleg Deripaska and the head of state Bank VTB Andrey Kostin will hurt more to the forum than to businessmen, said Dmitry Peskov. It is quoted by TASS on Wednesday, November 7.
“Deripaska, Vekselberg and Kostin became who they became, not because of the Davos forum, the Davos forum has become a forum thanks to businessmen”, — said Peskov.
In the opinion of the representative of the Kremlin, refusing to invite Russian businessmen, “the forum cuts your basics”. At the same time, he stressed that the non-participation of Russians in the event should not be considered a problem.
“In Moscow are the forums, some of them organized by the entrepreneurs you mentioned, all interested can always come to us in Russia,” reminded Sands.
On the eve of the Financial Times newspaper has reported that Deripaska, Vekselberg and Kostin will not be invited to the world economic forum, which will take place in January in Davos, Switzerland. According to the publication, international organizations have adopted this solution due to the ingress of entrepreneurs in the sanctions list of the USA. Also the newspaper writes that the Russian leader Vladimir Putin will not participate in Davos and in 2019.
