Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov assured that in 2022 the traditional direct line with the head of state will definitely take place. But the event will take place a little later.

As the official representative of the Kremlin pointed out, the direct line is not forgotten and in demand, reports TASS on Friday, June 24th. However, now Vladimir Putin has “a lot of more important events,” Peskov explained. “Therefore, a little later. But it will definitely happen,” he said.

In May, Dmitry Peskov confirmed direct line plans in 2022, as well as the beginning of preliminary preparations for it. Subsequently, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation indicated that she will be held after the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. There are no exact dates yet, Peskov said.

A direct line with the president, during which he answers questions from Russians, is held annually. The head of state listens to the complaints and requests of citizens, after which he gives the necessary instructions. For the first time, such a format of communication between the president and the people of Russia was organized in December 2001. The direct line in 2022 will be the 19th for Vladimir Putin as president.

In 2021, the direct line took place on June 30 and lasted almost 4 hours. During this time, Putin answered 68 questions. The total number of applications received in preparation for the event exceeded 2 million.
