According to the press secretary, the format of the marathon can accommodate a small composition, unlike the previous two press conferences.

"There are many more people who want to participate, than our format can accommodate. Unlike Antonov or Kyiv food market, the number of participants is limited in order to focus on the quality of the conversation," Nikiforov said.

As reported, on Friday, November 26, a press marathon will be held with the participation of Zelensky, dedicated to the "equator of his cadence." According to the President’s Office in its Tegeram-channel, the press marathon "30 Questions to the President of Ukraine" will start at 12:00 and will last three hours.
