MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin attaches great importance to the Cortege project intended to create a family of domestic limousines, including a fleet of official government cars, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
The Kremlin spokesman declined to comment on media reports that the facility for the production of limousines for top government officials under the Cortege project might be set up in a special workshop of the R&D Automobile and Automotive Engines Institute in Moscow.
"These are details of the project and, if commercial terms permit so, then I believe the Industry and Trade Ministry will be able to provide you with information," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"The work on the Cortege project is ongoing," Peskov added. "The project is developing and the president attaches great importance [to it]."
The Cortege project is broader than just developing limousines, the Kremlin spokesman said.
"This is the project for creating quite a universal platform and several platforms," Peskov said, adding that one option was for the official government fleet and the other for the commercial market.
