Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov joked that he wakes up in a cold sweat after seeing Vladimir Putin in his dreams.
Answering a question about whether he ever dreams of the Russian president, the official was positive and added that in his imagination, the Russian president looks very strict.
"I dream [of him] and it's always very scary," Peskov said during a comedy TV show on the NTV channel.
"He always appears very strict, and I always have a sort of fever: "Oh my God, I forgot to do something," he added.
Dmitry Peskov has been the press secretary for the Russian president since 2012.
