Davos forum discusses Russia's economic and political prospects

A special session will meet on Thursday evening in Davos in the context of the World Economic Forum to discuss Russia's prospects.

The session participants will consider possible scenarios of the development of the economic and political situation in Russia.

"It is expected that a very interesting group of speakers will address the session, including Russian Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin and former US President Bill Clinton's adviser Strobe Talbot who will certainly not miss the chance to express his opinion and the opinion of a considerable part of the American establishment on what was and is going on in Russia, especially in the past six months," said the Russian presidential economic adviser Andrei Illarionov.

According to him, the "YUKOS case" and the coming presidential elections will most likely be also discussed at this session.
