The world only knows President Putin’s whereabouts when he makes live appearances.
Years ago, a journalist asked the president’s office where Putin planned to spend the night while visiting St. Petersburg. In response, officials threatened to cancel her press accreditation.
What offense had she committed? Are the president’s whereabouts a state secret?
Yes and no. Under Russian law, citizens do not have a right to know where the president sleeps or dines — at least in peacetime.
The only time the world knows President Vladimir Putin’s exact whereabouts is when he makes a public appearance that is broadcast live. Otherwise, there is no guarantee.
