MOSCOW, April 22 (Itar-Tass) – The working schedule of Russian President Vladimir Putin will be adjusted to the preparations for “The Direct Line with Vladimir Putin” with the Russians in next few days, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with the television news channel Rossiya 24 on Monday.
“We have already scheduled fewer events for Monday (April 22), and the minimal number of events for Tuesday and Wednesday to give an opportunity to the president to build up his concentration,” he said.
In the words of Peskov, during the preparations to a live question-and-answer session with people Putin “is reading very actively through the information, which all the ministries and agencies provide to him.” “We are trying to forecast the scope of the issues, which are of highest interest,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Russian presidential press secretary noted that Putin will make up himself the so-called package of blitz questions. “He chooses some questions, because they seem mostly content-intensive for him, some of them – mostly audacious and some of them – mostly to the point,” Peskov underlined.
