WEF confirmed the participation of the Russian delegation at the Davos forum
The headquarters of the world economic forum (WEF) in Geneva has confirmed the participation of the Russian delegation at the Davos forum. It is reported that the delegation will include Russian businessmen placed under sanctions.
“We are pleased that Russia will send a high-level delegation to Davos. In order to address urgent global problems, we need all stakeholders at the annual meeting”, — quotes “RIA Novosti” managing Director of VEF Aloys Zwinggi.
Earlier, the WEF refused to invite to the winter session of Davos three Russians included in the sanctions lists of the USA. It was about Oleg Deripaska, Viktor Vekselberg and Andrey Kostin. According to “Kommersant”, the forum organizers refused to accept their payment for participation in the event.
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia will not participate in the forum if the restrictions are lifted. 15 Dec sources “RIA Novosti news Agency” and “Interfax” reported that the organizers of Davos forum withdrew the restrictions imposed on Russian businessmen.
