The Russian president and prime minister remain in close contact during the latter’s absence from public events, a Kremlin spokesperson said after the government press service revealed Dmitry Medvedev had suffered a sports injury.
“The president is traditionally in constant working contact with the chairman of the government,” Vladimir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday. The spokesman added that the work of the two top Russian officials provided for such constant contact regardless of their actual location.
However, Peskov declined to comment regarding Medvedev’s state of health, and suggested that reporters address questions on this matter to the government press service.
