    Russian President will meet later on Monday with Gazprom’s CEO Alexey Miller to discuss energy issues.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting later on Monday with Gazprom’s CEO Alexey Miller to discuss energy issues, including projects with Turkey and preparation for winter period, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

    "One of them [meetings] will be open, namely a discussion with Gazprom’s CEO Alexey Miller. Traditionally, there [will be] a lot of issues related to Turkey, international projects, and, in particular, [Russian] President [Vladimir Putin] intends to discuss issues, related to a preparation for winter, which is traditionally a relevant question in autumn," Peskov told journalists.

    The Turkish Stream project was announced in late 2014 by Putin during his state visit to Turkey. In November 2015, the project was suspended after a Russian Su-24 aircraft was downed by a Turkish F-16 fighter in Syria. A thaw in relations between Moscow and Ankara began last June following Turkey's apology to Russia.

    In late September, Russia's Gazprom said it had received a majority of permits from Ankara on the construction of the pipeline.
