MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. The Day of Crimea’s reunification with Russia is special and important for President Vladimir Putin in the emotional sense, the president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with RBC television channel on Sunday.
"Like for all of us, it is an extremely important day for him emotionally, since in many aspects the final decisions three years ago were taken exactly by him. Clearly, for him it is a big day, and important day. He was the one who undertook responsibility, who demonstrated the braveness - political and geopolitical. And he, probably, better than others realized consequences, which are bound to follow the decision," the press secretary said.
Though this year Putin could not attend the celebration of another anniversary of the reunification on March 18, the importance of this event is not smaller for the president.
"If he does not attend whatever celebration, does not mean at all that for him that day is changing the importance somehow. I am not sure exactly, how he is celebrating, but the fact that for him this day is special is absolutely clear," the press secretary said.
Besides, Peskov stressed the president is not happy about everything Russia has gained after Crimea’s rejoining.
"It is a complicated process, rater unprecedented, and, probably, in Russia’s new and newest history nothing of the kind has happened. Was Putin happy about everything? Sure, not. This is why he kept everything under his absolutely manual control," he said.
