MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Dmitry Medvedev will answer questions of television journalists in a live program that will begin at noon on Friday. According to the press service of the RF government, taking part in the program called “A Conversation with the Prime Minister” will be presenters of the TV Channel One, RTR, Ren TV, NTV and Dozhd channel. For Medvedev in the capacity of Prime Minister is will be the first experience, but Medvedev as former President has already had such experience.
The large interview with Medvedev will be aired for the fifth time. However, the viewers had seen the interview in this very format - with five different major TV channels - only once, in April 2012 when he summarise the results of his four-year presidency.
According to the prime minister’s press secretary Natalya Timakova, this format is well-proven and will be preserved. Thus, by inviting to the conversation the presents of several leading TV channels at a time the government intends to attract the largest audience.
The prime minister is expected at the year-end not only to sum up the first seven months of his work on the new post, but also will speak about what tasks his Cabinet sets for the coming year.
