St. Petersburg has held a pivotal role in Russian history and has been home to famous names from Stravinsky to Shostakovich, Nabokov to Najinski. President Vladimir Putin returns to his birthplace to host a key economic summit at a turbulent time in world affairs. Globalisation, cyber-security and tackling the world’s energy needs are all on the agenda. Strained relations with the west have increasingly caused Russia to look elsewhere for its economic survival, forging new partnerships with China and India. Also up for discussion - can Russia avoid being left behind in the space race and will next year’s FIFA World Cup provide a shot-in-the-arm to the Russian economy or leave behind a financial black hole? CNN’s John Defterios wraps up the issues from St. Petersburg.
