In the spirit of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s annual marathon question and answer sessions, President Dmitri Medvedev sat down on December 24 with the heads of Russia’s three state television channels for an interview entitled “Results of the Year with the President.” Over the course of eighty minutes, Medvedev answered questions concerning disputed regional elections, Garry Kasparov and the political opposition, an “evil” judicial system, and admitted that he listens to Linkin Park.
