Putin to wedding in Austria
moscow/vienna - President Vladimir Putin is going to a wedding in Austria this weekend. The Kremlin has confirmed, according to Russian media, that Putin is attending the wedding ceremony of Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl for his talk with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in southeastern Austria.
The 53-year-old Kneissl marries her one-year-old life companion, the entrepreneur Wolfgang Meilinger. Kneissl is a non-party politician who sits on behalf of the right-wing populist FPÖ in the government of the conservative Christian Democrat Chancellor Sebastian Kurz. Kurz is also on Kneissl's guest list.
Putin speaks Saturday night in Meseberg, 70 kilometers north of Berlin, with Merkel on Syria, Ukraine and energy issues such as pipelines for Russian gas.
