Biden to Visit Russia

WASHINGTON — U.S. Vice President Joe Biden will visit Finland, Russia and Moldova next month to meet with national leaders to discuss regional issues and topics of mutual interest to the United States.

The White House said Wednesday that the vice president will travel on the week of March 7.

A White House statement said Biden will build on warmer relations between the United States and Russia and consult with Finnish leaders on common priorities.

The State Department says that Finland's high-tech sector has been attractive to U.S. investors.

The White House also said Biden wants to signal support for Moldova's ongoing democratic and economic changes.
