I agree, there is a lot of propaganda in the air. However, when focusing on the facts - then the picture becomes a bit clearer and more unbiased. Link to Unbiased Reporting on Ukraine issue
And that considering, the stand-point of Putin becomes more solid, and justified.

He does, but not fluently enough for conversing where accuracy and time constraints are important.

I am not a usually quick to speculate on conspiracy...but Vladimir Putin worked as a translator for the KGB and also spent years tasked with recruiting Western Spies...I do think his English skills are very good.

He didn't seem sheepish to me at all. Quite forthright, in fact.
As an aside, if that had happened in the US to ANY of the Obama admin, the journalist would probably now be dead, or wishing he were, after a severe beating.
Who are the good guys?
