MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The 20 leading economies' agriculture ministers are expected in the German capital on January 22. Germany denied Tkachev an entry visa to attend a food and agriculture trade fair last January.

Alexander Tkachev is among 19 Russian and Ukrainian citizens and five Russian banks that Canada sanctioned in August 2014, who served as Krasnodar Region governor at the time.
