In a telephone conversation, they discussed the boy’s favorite musicians. Mark admitted that he doesn’t know how to play the guitar yet, but he really wants to learn.
“And where do you live now? Do you have any music schools or clubs nearby? Are they far from the place where you live?” the president asked.
The boy’s mother told him that they live with a friend of a large family. Putin promised to help them in honor of the New Year, talk to the governor and think about what can be done to make both families live in comfortable conditions.
“I want to congratulate you on the upcoming New Year and wish you all the best. I think you will succeed,” the Russian leader said to Mark at parting.
And earlier, Vladimir Putin realized the dream of a 13-year-old schoolgirl from Stavropol. The girl wanted to visit the Mariinsky Theater. After going to the play, the president talked to the schoolgirl and invited her and her mother to Moscow for the ice performance “Swan Lake”.
