MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will hold a big press conference on Thursday, December 15, to answer questions from Russian citizens.
Putin will answer all acute questions. “I have no doubt about that. He never ignores burning questions,” Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. “As a rule, he selects a pile of blitz questions on the eve to answer them during the press conference.”
Peskov said the press conference will be open-ended and not limited in time.
Questions were accepted by a special call centre, the Internet and SMS messages. More than 10,000 questions have already been received.
Last year, Putin answered 88 questions during slightly less than 4.5 hours. Questions came from different parts of the country, including Dagestan in the south, Murmansk in the north, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk in the east and Kaliningrad in the west.
