MOSCOW, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The residents of Crimea and Sevastopol may directly address President Putin during his call-in conference due on April 17, either making a free telephone call to the president, or taking part in a dialogue with the president by means of "video" questions, which is a new practice in a dialogue of the population with the president.
The Kremlin press service has informed on Thursday that the population of Crimea and Sevastopol are offered a free telephone number 7-495-539-24-42 to talk to the president.
Not only guests invited to the studio of the call-in program, but citizens from cities all over Russia may communicate with the president during live broadcasts from Russian cities. Some of them had either called or sent SMS messages to the single call centre or sent their video questions, which is a new practice used this year. Visitors to the website of the "On-Line" program may ask the president's opinion on problems of interest as well.
The questions to the president will be accepted throughout a week's time."The most interesting questions on pressing problems will be put through to the single call center and then put to the president during a live broadcast," the Kremlin organizers of the call-in interview assured.
The single call center has been receiving telephone calls from the population since Thursday noon, and will continue servicing the callers until the end of the call-in interview with the president.
A caller might dial number 8-800-200-40-40 from any place in Russia. A call from municipal or mobile telephones is free of charge.
SMS questions to the president, accepted in Russian only, should be put through to number 0-40-40, but only from telephones serviced by Russian telephone operators.
The call-in interview with the president will be broadcast live by First Channel, Rossiya-1, Rossiya- 24 television channels and Mayak, Vesti-FM and Radio Russia radio stations.
