MOSCOW, July 12. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said it is quite possible for a woman to become president of Russia. "That’s quite possible," he told reporters answering a question on the subject. "Perhaps, we should, first and foremost, proceed from the current legislation. Our Constitution says who can be the president. There are no gender differences."
The Kremlin spokesman recalled that there are a lot of women in the Russian government, ministries and agencies. "They work in parliament too," he added. "In this case women are quite active in all countries," Peskov said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin answered a similar question on April 14, 2016. First-grader Alina Akhmatova in Orenburg (Urals region) asked during Putin’s annual question-and-answer session whether a woman can be president of Russia as her dad told her that only Putin could handle America, the girl said.
"We need to think not about how to cope with America. We should think about how to cope with our internal issues and problems - roads, solving problems with public health care, education, the development of our economy, its recovery, setting the pace for its growth," the president said. He added that "if we do all that, we will feel invulnerable, ambitious people who want to live in this country and are proud of it."
"As for whether a woman can be the head of state, maybe a woman would be the best person to deal with all these issues," Putin said.
