After almost seven weeks of war against Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to answer questions from media representatives on Tuesday. Putin will visit the planned Vostochny cosmodrome in the far east of the country on Space Day, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in Moscow on Monday, according to the Interfax news agency.
The Kremlin chief also wants to meet his Belarusian counterpart and ally Alexander Lukashenko there and then answer questions from journalists.
