Kremlin says Putin ready to hear business concerns over U.S. 'oligarch list'

MOSCOW, Feb 9 (Reuters) - Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov
said on Friday that Russian businessmen were welcome to raise
their concerns about a U.S. report on people close to the
Kremlin with President Vladimir Putin at a meeting later on
Friday.

Peskov told reporters on a conference call that the
so-called "oligarch list" could hardly be called positive.

The U.S. Treasury Department last month named major Russian
businessmen including the heads of the two biggest banks, metals
magnates and the boss of the state gas monopoly on the list.
