A sign is on display near the main building of the Central Clinical Hospital in MoscowBy Svetlana Reiter and Pavel Miledin MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin is planning to build an exclusive health clinic for President Vladimir Putin and senior officials, according to documents seen by Reuters and to medical sources familiar with the project. The proposed three-storey building, in the grounds of the Kremlin-run Central Clinical Hospital in a Moscow suburb, will have space for 10 inpatients at a time and communications systems that under Russian law are reserved for the president, prime minister and other senior figures, according to design and planning documents. See a special report on the project here: http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/russia-kremlin-hospital/ In a written reply to Reuters questions, the Kremlin's property management department said the clinic was being built but said it was for hundreds of state officials whose care falls within its remit, including but not limited to the president and prime minister.
