Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's meeting with members of the International Council for Cooperation and Investment at the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs

On April 19, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will meet with members of the International Council for Cooperation and Investment at the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP - Russian acronym).

The International Council for Cooperation and Investment is a consultative body of the RSPP. It is a venue for dialogue between foreign businesses and Russian government agencies. The council unites leading foreign investors in the Russian economy, representatives of business associations and bilateral chambers of commerce.

The meeting participants plan to discuss aspects of Russia's practical cooperation with key foreign partners. They will pay special attention to the opportunities for foreign businesses created by Eurasian economic integration.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's participation in the presentation of a compilation of documents entitled 'Crimea in Russia's development: History, politics and diplomacy. Documents from the Archives of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs'

On April 23, the Foreign Ministry Mansion will host the presentation of a compilation of documents entitled 'Crimea in Russia's development: History, politics and diplomacy. Documents from the Archives of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.'

The compilation includes unique documents and materials from the archives of the Russian foreign policy department, many of which have been published for the first time. They embrace more than two hundred years - from the Treaty of Constantinople between Russia and Turkey signed in 1700 to the 1922 Treaty on the Creation of the USSR. The collection covers events related to Crimea's entry into the Russian Empire and the political, economic and cultural development of the peninsula.

Representatives of the Federal Assembly, ministries and departments, academic circles and public organisations have been invited to attend the event. An exhibition of historical documents will be part of the event. We will duplicate the exhibition on the Foreign Ministry's online resources, as we traditionally do.
