    Foreign policy adviser to US presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Carter Page, will deliver a lecture in Moscow on Thursday at the invitation of the New Economic School.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The lecture, entitled "The evolution of world economy: trends and potential" is set to start at 7:00 p.m. local time (16:00 GMT), according to the university. The lecture will be held at the World Trade Center Moscow.

    Elena Ovchinnikova, a senior instructor and research fellow at the New Economic School, confirmed to Sputnik Page’s arrival in Moscow on Tuesday.

    Earlier this week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that he had no information on whether Page would be received for consultations in the Kremlin.

    Page is a founder and managing partner of Global Energy Capital LLC, a New York-based financial institution and investment fund focused on energy investments in developing markets. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations as well as an adjunct associate professor in the Center for Global Affairs at New York University and a fellow at the Center for National Policy in Washington.

    Carter has previously served as deputy branch manager of the Merrill Lynch representative office in Moscow. He was also an adviser to Gazprom, RAO UES and other Russian companies.
