ROME/MOSKAU (dpa-AFX) – Amidst serious tensions between Russia and the West, a video conference by Italian companies with President Vladimir Putin has caused a stir. The exchange on Wednesday has “nothing to do with the current situation, nothing to do with any sanctions,” the Kremlin in Moscow clarified. Nevertheless, there was criticism in Italy of the talks, which sent the wrong signal, as criticized by members of the parliamentary control body for the secret services (Copasir). The Ansa news agency reported that the conversation was described as “strange”.

According to reports, Rome tried to convince the organizers to cancel the video switch. In addition, those companies in which the Italian state is a shareholder were asked not to participate. In government circles in Rome it was stressed that the meeting was a private initiative and that neither government representatives nor diplomats took part.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov spoke of 16 companies attending the meeting; three companies apologized. The energy company Eni (ENI share) , in which the state is the largest single shareholder, confirmed to dpa that it had canceled its participation. “These meetings are held regularly, not only with Italian companies, but also with large companies from other countries,” said Peskow.
