Bettel was in Russia with the economy minister Étienne Schneider to participate in the Open Innovation Forum to discuss the digital economy.

They also had talks which touched on bilateral, European and international relations.

Bettel said:

“The EU and Russia must cooperate more to stabilize the situation in Donbass. The civilians deserve a return to normal life, and children must be able to go back to school soon. I count on Russia to do everything to make this happen.”
