In the run up to the traditional press conference of the Russian Preseident Vladimir Putin, a screening of a documentary film “President” by Vladimir Solovyov (director Said Medvedev) took place at the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London.

The film covers a 15-year period (1999 – 2014) and tells the story of Vladimir Putin’s work, as well as the events that took place in Russia and the world during that time. The interview film tells about the president’s hobbies and reveals some details about his personal life, which the President usually shares reluctantly. In addition to Putin’s story about his 15 years as Russia’s president, the film includes interviews with representatives of the country's political and business elites, a documentary chronicle, unique footage of Vladimir Putin’s personal operators, and coverage of several major events of modern Russian history, including the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The screening was held in the framework of the Cinema Club Russia project, which is implemented by Rossotrudnichestvo jointly with the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK).
