Summit will be shorter than expected

THE BUSH-PUTIN summit will be 90 minutes shorter than originally scheduled, the daily Pravda reported.

Instead of the planned four hours the meeting will only last for two and half.

No confirmation was forthcoming on speculation that the change was due to criticism from the White House about the state of democracy in Russia.

According to the Russian daily, Vremja novostej, the move did not come from Moscow.

Bush has called on Russia to renew its commitments to democracy.

Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergej Lavrov said that Moscow would respond to the criticism only in Bratislava.
