President Putin

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) advised journalists that the Prime Minister had spoken to President Putin today to congratulate him on his re-election. The two leaders had also spoken about British investment in Russia and the war on terror. Asked for further detail about the discussion on investment, the PMOS said that British investment in Russia was already significant. The President had been making the point that he wanted it to continue.

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned about the reportedly ‘dubious circumstances’ behind President Putin’s election, the PMOS said that we would consider the report from the internal observers in full.
