MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is expected to answer journalists’ questions in the television programme Conversation with the Prime Minister on Wednesday, which will begin at midday.
The prime minister’s press secretary Natalia Timakova told TASS Medvedev will analyse the outgoing year and will share with the audience the government’s plans for the coming year.
“We expect, journalists will ask about the Russian economy, about the rouble rate, and implementation of the president’s recent state of the nation address - thus, the entire range of the social and economic situations in the country,” she said, adding the event would last for about 90 minutes.
The Conversation with the Prime Minister is a traditional format Medvedev uses to speak with Russia’s leading television channels. Traditionally, such interviews are organized at the end of a year and the head of the Russian government sums up the year’s results and outlines plans for the future.
Medvedev made use of this format for the first time on December 24, 2008, at the time of his presidency.
