Russia will agree to pay compensation to Polish citizens who were exiled to Siberia, according to Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov. At a press conference in Poland he said that 'the Russian government will soon approve the necessary document for this.' He then added that 'Polish citizens will be able to receive the money in their own country.' Compensation will also be paid to the children of exiled Poles.
Kasyanov today discussed matters regarding trade and economic cooperation and visas with his Polish counterpart. After a plenary session of the two prime ministers and other ministers from the two countries, Kasyanov met Polish President Alexander Kwasniewski. Kasyanov will shortly travel to Lodz, where he will take part in a meeting of the Russian-Polish Business Council.
