Poroshenko To Attend World Economic Forum In Davos Without Participating In Pinchuk-Organized Breakfast Meeting

President Petro Poroshenko will travel to Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, but he will not participate in a breakfast meeting organized by businessman Viktor Pinchuk.

An informed source disclosed this to Ukrainian News Agency.

"The president will be in Davos," the source said.

The source did not disclose whether Poroshenko intends to deliver a speech at the economic forum.

Presidential spokesman Sviatoslav Tseholko confirmed the information that Poroshenko will attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, adding that the president will not participate in the breakfast meeting organized by Pinchuk.

"The president of Ukraine will travel to Davos, Switzerland, where he will have an extensive program at the World Economic Forum. But he will not participate in the breakfast organized by Viktor Pinchuk," Tseholko wrote on Facebook.

Tseholko did not specify the date of Poroshenko's visit to Davos or details of his program of visit.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, United States Vice President Joe Biden is on an official visit to Ukraine on Monday.

Biden will travel to visit Davos after the visit to Ukraine.

In an article for the American publication Wall Street Journal in December 2016, Pinchuk expressed the opinion that Ukraine should consider temporarily excluding EU membership from the list of its declared short-term goals.
