Although October 7 is a weekend day in 2023, Putin will have a working day
Russian President Vladimir Putin turns 71 on Saturday.
This year, Putin will celebrate his 20th birthday as Russian president. Although October 7 is a weekend day in 2023, Putin will have a working day as he will attend a ceremonial launch of Russian gas supplies to Uzbekistan via Kazakhstan jointly with his Kazakh and Uzbek counterparts, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and Shavkat Mirziyoyev, respectively.
The Russian president himself said on Friday that these will be “the first exports of a kind in the history of these gas pipeline systems, for never has Russian gas been pumped toward Central Asia.”.
