The coronavirus pandemic has forced the Russian president's annual press conference to be altered. The affair normally gathers a large number of Russian and foreign journalists, but this year's event has moved to the virtual domain due to COVID-related precautions.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is holding his annual Big Press Conference, a de-facto summary of the year, on Thursday, 17 December in unprecedented circumstances.

This year's final press conference is being held via a video conference, with the president taking questions from journalists and ordinary Russians from his Novo-Ogaryovo residence due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With the traditional "Direct Line" Q&A session called off due to the epidemiological situation in the country, Russian citizens were invited to send their questions to the president via text or video messages.
