Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is to give an interview to record-breaking U.S. talk show host Larry King on Tuesday.
“The interview will be recorded today and will be broadcast at 05:00 a.m. Moscow time [02:00 GMT] on December 2,” Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
He said the interview is to last about 40 minutes and the subject of the interview is not defined yet.
When asked what had happened to the nuclear-powered Kursk submarine during his interview with King in 2000, Putin, five months into his first presidential term, simply replied: “It sank.”
In August 2000, an explosion onboard the submarine left 118 dead in one of the greatest tragedies in Russian naval history.
King, 76, who made it into the Guinness Book of World Records earlier this year for the longest-running television show hosted by the same person, on the same network and in the same time slot. Larry King Live on CNN was launched in 1985.
The second interview with Mr Putin will become one of the latest editions of Larry King Live. In September 2010 it was officially announced on closing the program. The last broadcast will be held on December 16. After that Larry King will leave CNN. It was reported that in January 2011 the nine-slot in prime time will be given to a British TV presenter Pearce Morgan.
