    This year, the number of journalists accredited for the event broke last year's record, with 1,640 journalists expected to attend, including reporters from the US, Germany, Japan, France, China, Poland and other countries. The Kremlin spokesman has confirmed the meeting with journalists will be held "in its traditional, rather exhaustive format."

    The Russian President is holding his 13th annual meeting with journalists. The December 14 event is the last of its kind during his third term in office. In 2008, Putin answered a record 106 questions from over 1,300 journalists over the course of four-and-a-half hours. The attendance record was set last December, when Putin spent nearly four hours answering questions from 1,437 Russian and foreign journalists.
