On Monday, January 16, a journalist from Komsomolskaya Pravda continued to discuss with the official representative of the Kremlin a topic related to the upcoming 80th anniversary of the breaking of the blockade of Leningrad.
… – Dmitry Sergeevich, when will Vladimir Putin’s trip to St. Petersburg take place, for the anniversary? And will the style that was present during the recording of the New Year’s speech of the President of Russia be observed there? That is, will the soldiers and officers who are now conducting a special military operation in the Donbass take part in this event?
“Naturally, this trip can take place on the day of the 80th anniversary of the breaking of the blockade of Leningrad,” Peskov said. This day is Wednesday, January 18.
There will be commemorative events.
– Then one more question, – I continued the topic. – As far as we know, Vladimir Spiridonovich Putin, the president’s father, took part in the battles on the Nevsky Piglet, and Vladimir Vladimirovich’s mother was in Leningrad during the blockade. Sometimes Vladimir Vladimirovich remembers this very briefly. Maybe the time has already come, at least for those dates, which we will celebrate on Wednesday, to talk in more detail about the life of parents? Plus. Did Vladimir Putin receive any anniversary awards, in connection with the liberation of the Leningrad blockade, that were awarded to other participants, for his father? Vladimir Spiridonovich was probably also awarded, posthumously.
– I am not aware that Vladimir Putin has received any commemorative award. This is the first.
I do not agree with you that there is a lack of information about the Putin family during the blockade.
The president himself in his interviews repeatedly and in great detail spoke about this – both about mom and dad.
I recommend that you familiarize yourself with a series of interviews on this topic, which are already available.
You probably forgot.
– No, Dmitry Sergeevich, I remember everything, but I’ll take a look again. Many thanks.
