I saw this earlier on RT.
Impressive statesman and gave a good open and totally non-pretentious interview.
I couldn't help drawing mental comparisons between Putins interview here, and what we're used to seeing of our politicians here in the West.
This was an open and natural, cordial interview given in this interview by Putin, the atmosphere was casual, there was no desk or lecturn to 'hide
behind' as so many others tend to do, none of the usual over the top, ostentatious and patronising 'i'm the parent, you're the child' attitude most
shown by other heads of state.
He answered the questions given to him without any notes or auto-cues, which shows at the very least he knows and is actively involved in what he's
talking about, rather than relying on a speech prepared by others and loaded onto an auto-cue to read off parrot fashion, like many leaders i'm sure
we can all think of always do.
Many of them would only just be able to recall their own names without an auto-cue, let alone speak intelligently, freely and openly on complex,
real-time issues like Ukraine.
It's worth a look if you mssed it...this is what a genuine politician looks like, rather than the dishonest, plastic puppets we're used to seeing
paraded out for photo and TV ops and soundbites.
