Putin’s Container Line Visit

A new A.P. Moeller-Maersk container line from St. Petersburg to Ecuador will help boost Russia’s trade with Latin America, the Russian government’s press office said Sunday.

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen will attend the opening of the trans-Atlantic line on Monday, the government said. Maersk accounts for 20 percent of Russia’s container shipments, it added.
