MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. The Kremlin is not afraid of high ratings of President Vladimir Putin, the Russian president’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said on Tuesday after a roundtable discussion at TASS reviewing Putin’s 15 years in power.
"The president has said it more than once that he is not in the habit of being preoccupied with his ratings. If one is always absorbed in trying to foretell how his or her future actions might impact the rating in this or that situation, no efficient work is possible," Peskov said. "Hence, the president is focused not on his ratings but on concrete actions. Both the government and the president are now focused on the implementation of the anti-crisis plan. No one is afraid of any ratings."
The presidential press secretary said he thought the roundtable discussion was rather interesting. He said expert opinion had been useful. "But, on the other hand, only he who does nothing, who has no ambitious plans, never makes mistakes," Peskov noted. "And we know that the president always puts forth ambitious plans. Not all of them are implemented as comprehensively and as promptly as we would like them to, but no one casts any doubt on purposeful, gradual progressive movement over these 15 years, which has entailed quality changes in the life of the country and each Russian."
