Russian leader Vladimir Putin intends to hold a large press conference at the end of the year, TASS reports.
“An annual press conference is planned,” the presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told the reporter, answering a question about the traditional meeting of the head of state with media representatives.
Peskov also added that the format of communication will be determined depending on the epidemiological situation.
Putin has been meeting with journalists in a large press conference since 2001. The very first meeting, in 2001, was the shortest – 1 hour 35 minutes. And the longest was the 2008 conference – it lasted 4 hours and 40 minutes.
It became known yesterday that Vladimir Putin is not yet planning a special appeal to the Russians in connection with the coronavirus.
It was also reported that the president signed a decree introducing non-working days from October 30 to November 7 due to the increase in the incidence of coronavirus.
