Putin thanked Verbitskaya for correcting his mistakes in pronunciation

Путин поблагодарил Вербицкую за исправление его ошибок в произношении

Russian President Vladimir Putin thanked the President of the Russian Academy of education Lyudmila Verbitskaya, who at his request it corrects mistakes in pronunciation.

“I would like to thank Lyudmila Alexeevna. She, at my request, constantly corrects me and helps me to improve my knowledge of the Russian language. She noticed that one should speak not together, and gathered. I believe that today we all have gathered here no wonder” — ironically said Putin.

Last year at the state Council meeting on education of the head of state admitted that consultation on the Russian language always refers to Verbitskaya, and in urgent cases even calling her from the plane.
