The owners of «Alfa-Group» Mikhail Fridman and Pyotr Aven are not «Putin’s emissaries,» said the press Secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov.

«They in no way are Putin’s emissaries. In this case, they represent one of the largest business structures in the Russian Federation, and only this structure. Of course, they can’t imagine the President of the Russian Federation», — said Peskov.

On Monday, the owners of «Alfa-Group» Mikhail Fridman and Pyotr Aven spoke at a private dinner at the Atlantic Council. Some experts call them «Putin’s emissaries» who came to «negotiate over the recovery of frozen assets.»
