Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin will meet with the leaders of the State Duma factions on February 17.
According to TASS, Peskov noted that various topics will be discussed at the upcoming meeting, including Putin’s upcoming message to parliament, elections to the State Duma and issues of domestic and foreign policy.
Also, Peskov, answering journalists’ questions, said that the date for the announcement of the President’s message to the Federal Assembly has not yet been determined. It is only known that she was not appointed for February.
Once a year, the head of state addresses the Federal Assembly with a message in which he talks about the main directions of domestic and foreign policy, as well as the state of affairs in the country. In addition to the State Duma deputies, the event is traditionally attended by senators, members of the government, governors, chairmen of regional legislative assemblies, heads of the Constitutional and Supreme Courts, and heads of traditional confessions.
In 2020, Vladimir Putin delivered a message on January 15. His appeal lasted an hour and 12 minutes. “AiF” wrote about what Putin spoke about in his 16th address to the Federal Assembly.
Earlier today it became known that Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin will speak at the State Duma on April 21 with a report on the work of the government in 2020.
