MOSCOW, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin saw no confusion in the Kremlin after the parliamentary election results were announced and no wave of criticism over violations in the election and in the vote counting.
The cabinet head himself learned to play hockey during the weekend.
In the call-in, Putin was asked through the Internet: "They say the December 5-6 events in Moscow and St. Petersburg caused confusion in the Kremlin. Urgent night meetings were convened there. Is it true?"
"I was not called to the meetings. I do not know," Putin answered with a smile.
"I say frankly, I saw no confusion there (in the Kremlin)."
The premier said he tried to learn to play hockey at the time.
Hockey became the government head's favorite hobby in recent months. Putin joked that he was "like a cow on ice", trying to perform anything".
"I did not pay much attention to what was happening, but I saw no confusion in the Kremlin," he said, adding "Though I has not been there (in the Kremlin) for a long time, frankly."
