Russian President Vladimir Putin (pictured) will take part in the congress of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP), which will be his first meeting with representatives of big business since February 24, 2022. This is reported by Vedomosti sources close to the RSPP and the Presidential administration (AP).

"A source close to the AP adds that the president is likely to attend a meeting of the heads of major companies on the first day of the event", - a source close to the AP told Vedomosti.

According to the interlocutors of the publication, close to the RSPP, the event is scheduled for March 16-18. During the meeting, according to them, the head of state can communicate with the bureau of the RSPP board. They added that over the past year, issues have accumulated that require a "direct dialogue with the authorities".

"For entrepreneurs, this is a chance to speak out on urgent problems and suggest ways to solve them", - the agency's interlocutors noted.

The last meeting of the President with big business (representatives of Russian business circles, not specific organizations) took place on February 24, 2022 and was devoted to the subsequent work under unprecedented sanctions after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine. After that, meetings in a similar format were not held.
