MOSCOW - Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet on Monday Almazbek Atambayev, President of Kyrgyzstan, in St. Petersburg, local media reported.

This will be the second meeting between the two presidents since the beginning of 2015, ITAR TASS reported.

Their topics will include the discussion of Russia-Kyrgyzstan cooperation in trade, investment, energy, and culture.

Putin, who has not been seen in public or on live television broadcasts for more than a week, postponed a meeting with Kazakh and Belarussian leaders last week.
