ST. PETERSBURG, April 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Wednesday will appear at the Russian State Duma lower parliament house to deliver a report about his government’s activity in 2011 and in the entire four-year term of his premiership, press secretary to the Russian head of government Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
“It will be a traditional report of the government that will be read out by the prime minister. The report is expected to be in a regular format. We think the speech will last for about one hour,” Peskov said.
According to Putin’s press secretary, Putin will review the current situation in the Russian economy and the social sphere. Along with that, Putin will speak about “priority steps in future.”
“It will be a yearly report, although it will have elements of a report for the entire term of the cabinet, since it is its last report. So, the report will assess the results of the entire term,” Peskov said.
When asked if any candidates for future government posts will be made public, Peskov said he did not think it is logical to expect that from the format of a report.
He said that the report will touch upon specific economic and social areas but refused to say whether it will assess the work of these or those cabinet members.
According to Peskov, all Duma factions have already announced the subjects they plan to raise at a meeting with the prime minister. “We expect that each faction will ask three questions,” he said and added that the prime minister have no idea what exactly he would be asked about but is aware of only general topics. “Obviously, many subjects that have been announced as areas of top priority for this of that faction will be reflected in the report,” Peskov noted.
