Putin to Host Call-In Show

President Vladimir Putin will hold his annual televised call-in show this spring, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

No date for the call-in show has been given, however, RIA-Novosti reported.

Putin did not hold his traditional call-in show in 2012 and instead opted for a large news conference, attributing the move to the winter weather and saying he did not want the few participants who pose questions from public squares to have to endure the cold.
