… – Dmitry Sergeevich, the president’s rating is already over 80%, the Russians trust Vladimir Putin, – with these words, the Komsomolskaya Pravda journalist began a conversation with the official representative of the Kremlin on Friday, July 29. – Nevertheless, the people have accumulated a lot of questions and suggestions. But for some reason, the Direct Line of the head of state is being postponed from month to month. Why? Although this year is 2022, it is such an unprecedented year, there has not been such a year in our history for a long time.
Here is what – verbatim – Peskov answered:
– The time will be determined, will be appointed. Watch, indeed, the “Direct Line” – due to the busy schedule – we did not have time to hold it at the beginning of the summer. Now, after all, many people have such a vacation period, so they will not be able to watch this in the mode in which they would like.
The first half of September is the beginning of the season, and the political season, and in general such a revival in the inner life after the summer period. And then – a date will definitely be set, and we will inform you accordingly.
– That is, – I clarified, – preparations, as I understand it, are already underway, and, perhaps, that it will be in the first half of September after all?
– No, not “maybe”, you didn’t hear what I told you.
I said that in the first half of September there is just such an activation of life, the resumption of the political season, of all events.
And then a date will be set.
