ST.PETERSBURG, April 28. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday he wanted the President documentary to primarily show the path the country has gone through and an ordinary man should have become its principal character.
"I agreed that this film was made and went on the air in order not to boast of what has been done but to show the way the country has traveled over the past years and from what benchmark we started 15 years ago and where we are now," Putin told a media forum of the All-Russia People’s Front.
Meanwhile, Putin criticized the authors of the documentary, which was aired on the Rossiya-1 TV Channel on Sunday, saying: "It seems to me that there could have been another angle - still an ordinary person should have become its main character."
The president said some 15 years ago the situation in the Russian social sphere was catastrophic. He reminded that the government then launched a program to support the demographic and healthcare sphere.
"But still this was done by particular people from the "zero ground" and one needs [to speak] more about them," Putin said.
In general, the documentary has reflected the major stages of the country’s development. "[Russia] managed to preserve not only its territorial integrity but also to restore and strengthen the constitutional framework of our state, the Armed Forces and the law enforcement system," he said.
