MOSCOW, April 17. /TASS/. The recent Direct Line with Vladimir Putin when the Russian president answered questions from the nation was not choreographed beforehand, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday.

"Speculations that everything was choreographed beforehand are absolutely out of place. The mere process of the question-and-answer session demonstrated that the president is not restricted to what is offered by the hosts. He analyses information he sees. He asked what was interesting to him at the moment," Peskov said in an interview with the Rossiya-1 television channel.

According to Peskov, only those question "where journalists were present beforehand to speak to people and ask what their questions could be" were checked. However questions coming from the internet and asked over the phone constituted "a array of information that could not be checked," he underscored.

Russian President Vladimir Putin held his 14th question-and-answer session on April 14. The program’s duration was three hours and 39 minutes. The head of state answered 55 questions.
