Our actual participation in the annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum is already a political breakthrough. This opinion was expressed by the DPR Minister of Foreign Affairs Natalia Nikonorova on the results of a two-day visit.

“This is really a significant event. First of all, this is the most unique event in the world of economics for the Russian Federation, but this is a particularly important event for the Donetsk People's Republic, because for the first time we are participating in such a large economic forum, which, in essence, can be equated to the World Economic Forum in Davos.

We hope that next year the DPR will be represented at the forum by its stand and republican products. There are a lot of interesting sections here. I, in particular, managed to participate in sections that were primarily aimed at relations between the Russian Federation and the European Union, where it was very interesting to hear the opinions and positions of European diplomats and representatives of Russia” - Natalia Nikonorova said.
