Telephone conversation with Alexander Kolyasnikov

December 19, 2020

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with Alexander Kolyasnikov from Tula Region, who visited the Moscow Zoo with his parents thanks to the President’s participation in the New Year Wishing Tree national campaign.

The President took part in the New Year Wishing Tree charity event and helped a wish come true for a Tula Region boy Alex, whose dream was to hug a panda. The child came to the Russian capital with his parents and, supervised by the Zoo staff, met the animal in a special area for training. Alex was able to create a unique T-shirt: he and Ru Yi the Panda applied colourful prints to the T-shirt.

Vladimir Putin called Alex and his parents during the tour and asked if the boy enjoyed meeting Ru Yi and congratulated him on his New Year wish coming true.
