The website publishes all content issued by the Presidential Press Service in Russian and English, especially transcripts of Russian Presidential speeches (e.g. Valdai speech of Vladimir Putin).

HistoryEdit

The web site of the President of Russia was launched in January 2000, and was radically reworked during 2001-2002, which resulted in a second version being released on June 20, 2002,[1] followed by an English version a year later. On January 19, 2004, a children's version was released and called the President of Russia - to citizens of school age."[2]

A third version was released on June 20, 2004,[3] only three months after the Russian Presidential Election.[4]

A fourth version was released on August 31, 2009,[5][6] with an English version on June 3, 2010.

The fifth, current version was released on April 8, 2015.

On May 13, 2010, the site became one of the first three sites in the domain .rf. [7][8]

On July 20, 2012, the site was target of a DDoS attack,[citation needed] and in 2013, the site was blocked in Turkmenistan.[9][10]

Since February 24, 2022, the site has been intermittently unavailable due to DDoS attacks, along with several other Russian government websites (e.g. mil.ru), [11] ostensibly as a reaction to the then Russian military incursions into the Ukraine. [12]
