Vestnik Kavkaza – Russian President Vladimir Putin will address an online climate summit on April 22, the Kremlin press service said on Monday.
“Putin will outline Russia’s approaches in the context of establishing a broad international cooperation geared to reverse negative impacts of the global climate change,” it said.
The president’s speech will be televised live, according to his press secretary, Dmitry Peskov. “It will be a live address,” TASS cited him as saying.
Dmitry Peskov has repeatedly said that Moscow would thoroughly analyze possibilities for the president’s participation in the climate summit.
