MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. The Kremlin confirms that Russian President Vladimir Putin has given a Labrador puppy as a birthday present to a seven-year-old girl from Tula, a city located about 190 kilometers south of Moscow, Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
In reply to the query whether this present has something to do with the president or was an initiative of local authorities, he said "of course it has". "As a rule this comes as an appeal received by our department for work with citizens, which processes them," he said.
On Monday, seven-year-old Evelina Savushkina from Tula received a Labrador puppy as a birthday present from President Putin. The puppy was handed over by region’s head Vladimir Gruzdev.
The girl received the puppy with documents and with things necessary to take care of it. Previously, the girl wrote a letter to the president asking him for a puppy.
Indeed, the president, a fan of Labrador Retrievers, presented some children with Labrador puppies. One of them went to ten-year-old Akurbek Tsagarayev from North Ossetia, another one - to four-year-old Masha Kozlova from the Omsk region, one more to Katya Sheveleva, 13, from the Tyumen region and another one to four-year-old Masha from the Yakut city of Vilyuisk.
In another episode, ten-year-old Veronika from the city of Kovdor, Murmansk region, received from the president in February a Scottish Fold kitten.
