Remote communication through video or audio conferences has become more popular than ever because of the worldwide pandemic. These events, therefore, have provoked the development of systems for automatic minuting of spoken language leading to AutoMin 2021 challenge. The following paper illustrates the results of the research that team MTS has carried out while participating in the Automatic Minutes challenge. In particular, in this paper we analyze existing approaches to text and speech summarization, propose an unsupervised summarization technique based on clustering and provide a pipeline that includes an adapted automatic speech recognition block able to run on real-life recordings. The proposed unsupervised technique outperforms pre-trained summarization models on the automatic minuting task with Rouge 1, Rouge 2 and Rouge L values of 0.21, 0.02 and 0.2 on the dev set, with Rouge 1, Rouge 2, Rouge L, Adequacy, Grammatical correctness and Fluency values of 0.180, 0.035, 0.098, 1.857, 2.304, 1.911 on the test set accordingly.
