MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. The Russian president will hold his annual televised question and answer session officially known as "The Direct Line with Vladimir Putin" on April 14, the Kremlin press service said on Thursday.
Prominent politicians and public figures will gather in a studio in downtown Moscow, where Putin will answer questions pouring from all parts of the country.
The 14th Q&A session will traditionally start at noon Moscow time and will be broadcast live by Channel One, Rossiya-1 and Rossiya-24 TV channels, and Mayak, Vesti FM and Radio Rossii radio stations.
The president's first session was held in 2001, lasting two-and-half hours. Since that time, his 13 appearances have totaled 40 hours.
