MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin who enjoys record popularity in the world cannot fail to go down in history. For that reason, it considers publishing books about him logical.
Speaking about the Red Square book festival that opened in Moscow on Friday, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that several books about the Russian president would be presented at the forum. "You do not have to wait for the book (with a selection of Putin’s speeches) to be published. They are available on the presidential website, and anyone interested can see them both in the archive and in real time. Anyway, systemic presentation of the president’s speeches may prove handy for all those who are interested in this," the Kremlin spokesman said.
He noted that the festival "would feature other books about the president as well published both in our country and abroad."
"Naturally, President Putin with his record-breaking level of popularity, record level of confidence given to him by the population, not only in the country but also abroad, cannot fail to leave his mark in our country’s history and in the history of world affairs," Peskov said.
A three-volume edition of Putin’s speeches "Direct Speech" is to be presented at the Red Square festival. "Frankly speaking, this is the first time I hear that this book will be presented," the Kremlin spokesman said. He added, though, that he was aware of other books about Putin to be presented at the festival, including "Putin - the Logic of Power" authored by a German journalist.
"This interest shown in him (Putin) is understandable and natural," Peskov said.
