MOSCOW, October 7 (Itar-Tass) - No events were planned to mark Vladimir Putin's birthday. The president's schedule was so tight that there hardly was time to celebrate, his press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
According to Peskov, they flew at night, and immediately after the arrival Putin went to the summit site. The president worked until midnight local time, and the next day the beginning will be early. "So, I do not think there will be any celebration," the press secretary said on Dozhd TV.
"The agenda was rather tight. So, there is no time for long congratulations," he said, noting that of course it was very pleasant when world leaders congratulated Putin in such a way (sang a song to a guitar).
