Siluanov and Manturov arrive at Russia's government talks on windfall tax

The heads of Russia's top metal and chemical producers arrived at the Moscow headquarters of a business lobbying group today for talks with the government on a possible windfall tax on their firms.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin has called for discussion of a proposal by Kremlin aide Andrei Belousov to raise more taxes from metals and mining companies that are earning what some see as windfall profits.

Russia's Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and Industry Minister Denis Manturov also arrived at the talks being held at the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs's building, Reuters reported.
