Old woman’s life changes due to Putin’s Q&A session

Putin's question-and-answer session brought immediate results for one 84-year-old woman. She got a new home… in minutes.

The nephew of the World War II veteran complained to Russia's Prime Minister that authorities in the city of Azov repeatedly failed to find her a home.

Putin promised to help, and within 40 minutes of the session, the pensioner had a new home.

The local government held an extraordinary meeting while Putin was still answering questions on television, and the region's governor immediately got things moving.
