Presidents Vladimir Putin of Russia and George Bush of the US will meet in the village of Tsarskoye Selo near St. Petersburg, on November 22. According to the information of a reporter of the Rosbalt news agency, the Presidents will visit the Palace of Catherine the Great, the former royal residents immediately after the Air Force 1 lands in the Pulkovo-2 airport.
At the palace, the reporter was told that there was still no information concerning the pending visit, so no special programme was being prepared. According to earlier plans, the Presidents may spend several days in St. Petersburg and, among other things, again meet with the students of the St. Petersburg State University.
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
