    Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Moldovan counterpart Igor Dodon on Friday held a separate bilateral meeting to discuss the relations between the two countries on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — Dodon stressed that the recent actions of Moldovan government were not helping in the promotion of bilateral ties' development.

    On Monday, Moldovan media reported about the decision of Chisinau to expel five Russian diplomats. Moldovan Prime Minister Pavel Filip said the decision was made on the basis of information received from security services.

    SPIEF, held in Russia's second largest city between Thursday and Saturday, is a major global platform for communication between business representatives and the discussion of crucial economic issues. The Sputnik news agency is an official media partner of SPIEF.
