The upcoming big press conference of President Vladimir Putin and the preparations for it once again refute rumors about the president's health problems, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov believes.
In an interview with Russia 24 TV channel, he gave a positive reply to the remark of a journalist that a person with health problems could hardly cope with all that.
"That's what we've been saying for a long time, but we were not believed," Peskov said.
Putin will give a big conference live on the air on Thursday. As a rule, such events last for several hours. Putin's latest meeting with the press in 2008 lasted for 4 hours and 40 minutes.
