Russia: Sevastopol residents watch Putin from central square

Russian Federation, Sevastopol
April 16, 2015 at 12:25 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hundreds of residents of Sevastopol gathered in the main square to watch Russian President Vladimir Putin speaking at the annual live question-and-answer session, Thursday.

People across the whole country tuned in to follow the session, Vladimir Putin's 13th in a row, which was broadcasted by Russia's major TV channels and radio stations. But many of the locals of Sevastopol preferred to gather outside to share their appreciation of Russian achievements in 2014, such as the Crimean referendum, which resulted in the reintegration of the peninsula into the Russian state.

A record number of over 3 million calls and text messages were sent in for this year's annual "Direct Line" with the Russian president, in which he has addressed a range of issues including the Ukrainian conflict, sanctions imposed on Russia and the country's economy.
