Traditional gastronomy of the Volga looks likely to be on the menu at the European Union’s bi-annual summit with Russia, but not Polish meat.

Some one thousand kilometres southeast of Moscow, President Vladimir Putin and his guests Jose Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission and Chancellor Angela Merkel of the EU’s current presiding nation Germany will hold an informal dinner dialogue at the Volzhski Utios resort on the Volga River.

The summit proper, near the region’s main city of Samara, gets under way this Friday. The trio have a long list of differences to cover, ranging from meat trade to Russian minority sensitivities in Europe and oil.
