“The night before, after the Russian-Turkish talks, Putin held a working meeting with the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadrov,” he said.
The press secretary of the Russian leader noted that the interlocutors discussed the socio-economic development of Chechnya.
The meeting of the heads of Russia and Turkey was held on August 5 in Sochi. The talks lasted a little over four hours. The leaders of the two countries agreed to increase trade and cooperation between the two countries in such areas as trade and transport.
Putin noted that the Turkish Stream is one of the most important routes for the supply of Russian gas to Europe.
In addition, the head of state thanked Erdogan for his role in reaching agreements on grain, including the supply of Russian products and fertilizers. The Turkish leader, in turn, told Putin that they have to open a new page in matters of cooperation.
Also, Putin and Erdogan came to the conclusion that Ankara will begin to partially pay for Russian gas supplies in rubles.
