The press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov gave an interview to the TV channel ” MIR “, part of which was shown on air on Saturday. In particular, the press secretary spoke about Vladimir Putin’s programme for the next six years.
According to Peskov, changes in Russia will affect all areas of people’s lives, “absolutely everyone.” New plans will be implemented in the economy, social sphere, defense capacity, technology, development.
The government will begin work on the president’s program, which he announced in a message to the Federal Assembly, after determining the composition of the new Cabinet. Peskov did not specify whether the same ministers will remain, or whether some will be replaced.
The presidential administration has not yet commented. There are rumours that Foreign Minister Lavrov may retire, but this has not been confirmed.
The spokesman noted that Putin is paying special attention to the problems and prospects of youth. It is fair to say, the main opponents of Putin are those under the age of 25, who do not recall life in the 1990s.
According to Peskov, the president understands that the implementation of plans in the long term will require the participation of young people. It is obvious that breakthroughs in technologies and other spheres are impossible without solving social issues of the next generation.
