Russian President To Choose Questions For His Presser From Internet

Gorki, 11 May: The fact that President Dmitriy Medvedev's press conference on 18 May will be held at the Skolkovo innovation centre will help the general public to learn more about the progress of the project, the president's spokesman Natalya Timakova has told reporters.

The Skolkovo site was chosen so that regional and foreign journalists "could see for themselves how the project is getting off the ground," Timakova said.

She said that the site "has all technical capabilities needed to hold such events".

The press secretary also said that, in addition to a 650-seat hall for journalists, there will be a working room for 400 seats.

"It will accommodate those who need go live on air or send comments to their editors during the press conference," Timakova said.

She said that during the press conference the website would display all questions sent to the president and the president himself would be able to choose questions interesting to him and give the floor to the author. This, according to Timakova, will give people a better opportunity to ask the president questions and get noticed by him.
