Putin to join All-Russia People's Front conference in late March - Peskov
MOSCOW. March 3 (Interfax) - President Vladimir Putin will attend a conference of the All-Russia People's Front in Rostov-on-Don in late March.
"The All-Russia People's Front will gather for one in a series of conferences in Rostov-on-Don on March 28 and 29 to discuss the fundamental issues pertaining to Russia's development," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Friday.
The agenda will include "issues discussed in Putin's pre-election articles one way or another, which make the groundwork for the president's first decrees," he said.
The Rostov-on-Don conference in March will center on issues raised in the article titled "Justice and Social Policy."
The conference will be attended by representatives and leaders of the Front's regional branches and delegates of different organizations sharing the same platform, he added.
Asked whether the conference will be held jointly with United Russia, he said, "United Russia is a political party, as you know, which supports the Front." On whether the party's chairman will attend the conference, Peskov said, "I am not sure. This is not mandatory. I do not know the program."
The first day will unfold at the Rosvertol company with discussions focusing on five issues: demography and the defense of children, health, decent employment and workers' prestige, Russia without poverty and quality education.
The results will be summed up on the second day in Putin's presence, Peskov said.
