MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will be able to receive a report from officials on the solution of the problems that citizens complained of during his annual question and answer session (Direct Line with Vladimir Putin) on June 7. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters about it, responding to a request for comment about an RBC report saying that Putin will talk to governors and parliamentary members live during the Direct Line.
"I can confirm it to a degree," the spokesman stressed. "The president can always be in contact with government members and regional heads, and this time he will have this possibility as well," he added.
