The following is the second of a two part resource presenting the official video, transcript, and official translation for Vladimir Putin’s annual news conference as given on December 19, 2019. Part I can be found here (and includes the same video without English dubbing).
Note that the text is as given on the Kremlin’s official site. It has been reformatted so that students of language can better use it as a learning resource. Edits have been made only to paragraph spacing in some instances to make the side-by-side formatting work. All images also from Kremlin.ru.
