The decision to transfer the direct line with President of Russia Vladimir Putin has nothing to do with the protests. About this journalist said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, reports .
“This is the most likely view at all. The decision to postpone was made about two months ago, long before the actions that had taken place a week ago. To link quite absurd,” Peskov said, answering the relevant question.
He also stressed that in this solution there is no “ideological or other motive”, and it is only with the schedule of the President.
That direct line with the President this year will be held not in April, as usual, and “later,” Peskov said on Thursday, March 30.
The head of the sociological service Levada-center Lev Gudkov in an interview with “Kommersant” suggested that it may be associated with the past, March 26 mass protests, “which the President clearly does not want to talk”. According to experts, the issue of corruption “casts a shadow not only on Dmitry Medvedev as the Putin”.
