    Russian President Vladimir Putin is holding a traditional final press conference of the year for Russian and foreign journalists.

    This will be the 15th press conference of its kind; during his tenure, Putin has devoted almost two days to talking with the media via this format, about 47 hours.

    1,895 members of the press have been accredited to cover the event, almost two hundred more than in 2018, when the previous record for the number of accredited attendees was set.
