Russian President Vladimir Putin does not have the rank of general, although he has earned it many times over. This, as reported by TASS, said the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov.
“In general, the president has certainly earned this title many times, but now it is not a priority for him. He works as president, he has a lot to do, ”said Peskov.
The Kremlin spokesman added that Putin is not a career officer, “so he is just focusing on other issues related to the day-to-day running of the state.”
Journalists asked Peskov if the head of state is a retired or retired colonel. The press secretary of the Russian leader found it difficult to answer this question precisely. “I think he was in reserve,” he said.
When asked about his rank, Peskov said that he was a senior lieutenant.
