MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin is following the situation around the detention of Baring Vostok's head Michael Calvey very closely and hopes it will not affect the Russian investment climate, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.

He said President Vladimir Putin had met Calvey many times in the past but that his detention was beyond Putin's remit.
