Alternative Energy Support

Businesses are counting on government support to push legislation for alternative energy, billionaire Viktor Vekselberg said at a meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Friday.

“Alternative energy legislation is being drafted, not just solar energy but wind and tidal energy,” Vekselberg said. “This sector is very important for the future of Russia.”

Vekselberg also briefed Putin on a solar-panel project that his Swiss high-tech firm Oerlikon is delivering along with Rusnano in Chuvashia.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
