“A direct line with Vladimir Putin” is planned this year, preparations are underway for it,” Peskov told TASS. Maybe <...> the dates will go a little to the right, maybe not. There are no dates yet, but preliminary preparations are underway.
He noted that the holding of this broadcast and the President's message to the Federal Assembly "are easy to separate in time, so there are no problems here." He did not name the expected dates of the message to Parliament. The day before, a Kremlin spokesman said that "there is no date yet", but it should take place this year.
“There is a duty to read out the message every year,” Peskov pointed out.
Recall that in 2020 there was no “Direct Line with Vladimir Putin” in the traditional format this year , its elements were added to the president’s big press conference in December.
