On Thursday, December 15, a journalist from Komsomolskaya Pravda asked the official representative of the Kremlin the following questions…
… – Dmitry Sergeevich, today is the 65th anniversary of the birth of the former journalist of Komsomolskaya Pravda (and we, you know, there are no former), former head of the Presidential Administration of Russia Valentin Yumashev. (Who, by the way, remained the adviser to Vladimir Vladimirovich until April of this year). How does the Kremlin assess this figure? It is generally accepted that Yumashev left a notable mark on Russian politics. He was one of those who selected and nominated the successor to Russia’s first president. Maybe there will be a call from Vladimir Vladimirovich to Valentin Borisovich?
“No, I don’t know if any kind of call is planned,” Peskov said. – Well, you have practically partially answered your own questions.
In fact, he (Valentin Yumashev. – AG) left a certain trace.
He headed the administration (of the President of Russia – AG) and, of course, was a very prominent personality in Russian politics.
But at the same time, it’s been a long time since he’s said to have retired.
We wish you a happy birthday, we wish you all the best.
– Let’s unite. Thank you.
