Western journalist noted “sharp intelligence” by Vladimir Putin


Recently we Reportedas leading Western media began to analyze the activities of Russian President Vladimir Putin over the past two decades, describing his achievements. Therefore, it is not surprising that the famous Swiss television journalist Darius Roshben, who interviewed the Russian leader in 2016, also expressed his opinion about Putin.


The journalist believes that Putin conquers his interlocutors with his intellect and free manner of communication. That's what Roshben put it in the framework of the project RIA News, which is dedicated to the 20th anniversary of Putin’s stay at the head of the Russian state. By the way, the project is a series of interviews with various famous people who know Putin well or have been in contact with him for some time.

I was struck by the very sharp intellect of Vladimir Putin and also his irony. During the interview and without a camera, he enjoys joking with pleasure

- said Rushben.

I noted the freedom of tone of his conversation. The heads of the western states and the leaders of the western countries with whom I speak often seem to be afraid of something (not to be re-elected, to say unnecessary, irritating public opinion). He, on the contrary, seems very free and self-controlling. This is undoubtedly also the result of his political longevity and his concept of power

- added Rushben.

In turn, the former Italian Foreign Minister and former European Commission President Franco Frattini believes that the secret of Putin’s political longevity lies in his ability to tell people the truth. That is, Putin is telling the truth, even if it can be unpleasant. At the same time, Frattini ranked Putin among the few world leaders who value and maintain personal friendship. Therefore, Frattini gladly shared his impressions and memories.

    ... I was struck by the very sharp intellect of Vladimir Putin and also his irony ...

    - it was he who most likely spoke out, having listened to the next rasping joke of his grandfather, who was once a grandmother (or will become a grandmother - figs will understand him) ...

        It is precisely the lack of intelligence that prevents him.

      Normal intelligence, like any other uncle who has an education and regularly reads books.
      According to the position, the flow of information that every president owns, as well as the circle of his communication, his intellect simply must be higher.
      I don’t understand how intellect can be sharp or dull, can we talk about sarcasm and a sense of humor in general?

          I can assume that they read books to him, as well as a lot of different analysts and consultants on various issues.

            The fact of the matter is that perhaps someone is giving, and precisely those that he himself considers necessary?

              Of course, it does, but no one canceled their opinion.
              Mr. Putin is quite consistent with the course of his predecessor.

                Almost completely disagree with you.

                  So, you see everything that happens from a different angle. This is normal.

                    I agree with you here. Only, I see, not everyone admits such a right.
