Vladimir Putin plans to meet with military journalists at the forum.
On Wednesday, June 15, the 25th SPIEF-2022 Economic Forum opened in St. Petersburg. The Forum will become a meeting place for representatives of 127 states. The main theme of these three days was the motto “New World — new opportunities”.
It is already known that Vladimir Putin has adjusted his participation in the SPIEF. The Kremlin assured that the president’s speech would be “extremely important” and “very interesting.”
Vladimir Putin does not plan to have a tea party with the heads of foreign companies, instead of talking with the heads of the world’s media, the president will meet with military journalists who cover the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine and their editors-in-chief. The moderator of the panel discussion with Putin’s participation will be RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan.
The reason for the panel discussion was the Kremlin’s concern about the “information adequacy of Western journalists.”
“They all just went crazy speaking Russian,” Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, expressed his opinion.
It will be possible to participate in the panel discussion for 1 million rubles, MK reports.
One of the notable figures at the SPIEF was Philip Kirkorov, who, in company with the Governor of the Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko, signed an agreement on socio-economic cooperation.
According to Kirkorov, he invested in the construction of the Zvezda shopping and entertainment complex in Novosaratovka near St. Petersburg. The cost of the shopping center is almost 1.5 billion rubles.
“At first we wanted to announce a contest in social networks for the name, and then we thought and I decided: the shopping center will be called Zvezda. And what else can it be called?” — the artist explained.
Kirkorov said that in the evening he would “sing” with partners, and also sat in a new Yamaguchi massage chair.
By the way, the Telegram channel Readovka reports that Kirkorov refused to answer questions about the special operation. The artist defiantly turned around and went the other way, saying that the forum was not political.
Attention was attracted to the robot barmaid Dunyasha, who sells ice cream on the forum. Some noticed that the “cashier” was created in the image of the heroines from the “Stepford wives” or saleswomen in the USSR in the 50s of the XX century.
The media found out that Dunyasha was copied from a real woman – she became the wife of the founder of the Perm Gorky Park Rashid Gabdullin Diana. She is also “Mrs. Perm – 2014”. The couple plan to receive a grant from Skolkovo and make 18 such robots.
By the way, there is another Dunyasha in the Perm park. Such a robot costs about $ 10 million.
“Beautiful wife, che. By the way, they have four children, quite a happy family,” Ksenia Sobchak stood up for Gabdulinna.
By tradition, the high prices in the buffet were also interested in the forum. Lunch will cost 4,500 rubles, luxury alcohol in the price reaches several hundred thousand rubles.
“And in the best traditions: eat at home”, – Ksenia Sobchak filmed food prices at the SPIEF and published in her Telegram channel “Bloody Lady”.
Sobchak also showed a video of a robot that works at the 1C stand and always wins.
And the hall of the WEB turned out to be an automated (inhuman) bartender.
Ksenia Sobchak also told about the fact that Alexei Navalny also lit up at the SPIEF. The news feed of the agency was shown on the TASS information stand, it hung just on the news about the oppositionist.
The media also note the strict anti–coronavirus requirements at the forum – participants take tests, all visitors wear masks. If someone violates the requirements, they can have their badge cut off.
As Topnews wrote earlier, the Kremlin warned that Vladimir Putin would appeal to global investors at the SPIEF. His words will concern the sanctions of the West and the whole world.
