Vladimir Putin meets Taganka theatre art director Yuri Lyubimov on occasion of his jubilee

Russian President Vladimir Putin met the Taganka Theatre art director Yuri Lyubimov on occasion of his 85th birthday.

Vladimir Putin met Yuri Lyubimov and his wife. The Russian President presented Yuri Lyubimov's wife with flowers and gave the "maestro", as Vladimir Putin put it, a "small gift" - a collection of two pens with an inscription: "The President of the Russian Federation".

Mr. Lyubimov thanked the Russian President for his attention and pointed out that Vladimir Putin had been the first person to congratulate him on his birthday via phone.

Mr. Putin said that he had watched a performance given by Yuri Lyubimov's colleagues and fans in front of the Taganka Theatre on TV the day before and he had been greatly impressed by that.

Then, Vladimir Putin invited the Lyubimovs to sit down at the table and drink tea and the meeting continued without journalists.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
