Putin visit commemorative but also opportunity for substantive talks

Vršič/Brdo pri Kranju/Ljubljana, 30 July - Commemorative topics were front-and-centre as Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Slovenia on Saturday, but the mini tour of the country was also used as an opportunity for talks on bilateral and international cooperation, currently hampered by Western sanctions against Russia and Russia's counter-sanctions.
