Brittney Griner landed in the United States early Dec. 9, after being released in a prisoner swap. Her return home ends a nearly 10-month saga that landed the WNBA star in the middle of Moscows feud with Washington. U.S. officials have said they are still working to secure the release of Paul Whelan, a U.S. Marine turned corporate security executive who was convicted of espionage and is serving a 16-year sentence in a Russian prison.

international business forum: Russia: Moscow hosts BRICS+ International Business Forum – The Economic Times Video

The BRICS and International Business Forum is an opportunity for its organisers, guests, and participants to find new partners and discuss current business management principles. More than a thousand entrepreneurs from the five countries have applied for the award and experts selected the top 100 projects. A new online platform, the BRICS investment club, was also presented at the forum. Thanks to it, as conceived by the author of the idea, businessmen from the five countries will be able to find investors for their projects faster and invest money online in interesting initiatives. The International Forum traditionally attracts attention not only from the business community but also from the legislative branch. The introduction of new mechanisms and instruments for the development of entrepreneurship in the BRICS countries, as well as the strengthening of international cooperation proposed by the Russians, were supported by their foreign counterparts. The Brazilian ambassador to Russia, Rodrigo de Lima Baena Soares, said that together the five states would be able to achieve the most ambitious goals. The main objective of the BRICS+ international business forum was the creation of a business incubator at Omsk State Technical University in 2023. It is supposed to help aspiring entrepreneurs successfully develop their businesses.
