Putin could not restrain himself during an interview with a journalist from the United States: "You are trying to shut me up"

Before the meeting in Geneva (Switzerland) of the presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, respectively, the Russian leader gave an exclusive interview to American journalist Kir Simmons from NBC. During the conversation, the head of the Russian state could not restrain himself and made a remark to the media representative, drawing attention to the American's incorrect behavior when he did not like the answers. The full text version of the conversation can be found on the Kremlin website.

In the course of the conversation, the topic of conferring the status of foreign agents to citizens and organizations in Russia was raised. Putin recalled that the relevant law has been in place in the United States since the 30s, and this does not bother anyone in the West. Moreover, the American normative act is much stricter than the analogous one in the Russian Federation. At that moment, without letting the president finish speaking, the journalist interrupted him under the pretext that the interlocutor had distracted from the topic, "commenting on the internal affairs of other countries."

If you have patience and let me say to the end what I want to say, everything will become clear to you. But you don't like my answer. You don't want your viewers to hear my answer. That's the problem. You shut me up. Is this freedom of expression, or is it freedom of expression in the American way?

- said Putin.

Previously reported as President of the Russian Federation characterized former US President Donald Trump and the current owner of the White House.

    Isn't our Gazprom manager tired of always making excuses to journalists?

    Interview with overseas partners ... Nonsense.
    He drops Russia.

    Putin is completely satisfied with the West, but no one respects him. I talk about this all the time. If I am not respected, why should I respect? I would have kicked this journalist out for such behavior. And Putin has wiped himself out and like Leopold the cat - let's live together!

    I'm just wondering - why is the GDP crucified before this Yankees? Our AT LEAST ONE interviewed the can ???
    Yes, we for these upstarts, as we were white negroes, and remained. Can't you see it? Why throw beads in front of pigs? Maybe it's enough to prove something to someone? They are ORIGINALLY not going to understand ANYTHING and ANYONE. Only the grave can fix them.

    There is such a practice and it is not only Russian - to give interviews to the edition of the country with the leader of which the meeting is being held. What an incomprehensible innuendo in the comments. If you consider yourself educated enough you could know about it!

      Well, this is not a lordly thing (s)

      If you are educated enough, you should know - the President of the United States refused to
      journalists, before meeting with Putin, to give interviews. And refused to Putin
      in a joint press conference.

        Was the press conference for Putin supposed to be held? It's just that old Joe wisely avoided overloading himself.

    objectively speaking, the interview is certainly a failure, all his answers to provocative questions looked more like excuses, and the interview itself was for interrogation. Still, I thought that Putin was smarter, and he looked like a student at the blackboard in front of the teacher.

      What a pity that everyone knows how to coolly answer questions and run the state, they already work as taxi drivers, hairdressers or waiters.

    In general, zhurnalyug (that ours that theirs), you need to periodically flog. Literally. Rods. Publicly, with full coverage of the process in the media and television broadcasts. And fines. So that the bazaar would be watched. Imprisoning and killing is not necessary, this is an extreme.
