The Putin Interviews (2017)
Vigile 2 points 1 month ago. (Contains Spoilers)

I live in Russia and Putin regularly answers questions in an open public forum. He will sometimes stand for hours responding to the questions of regular citizens with no limit on subject. What is profound in this is he answers without canned responses and is a master of facts and statistics. It’s quite refreshing to watch after spending a lifetime watching western pols answer questions with non answers while grabbing for sound bytes.

but he’s the opposite of honest, Russians have an art for lying, they see no shame in misdirection, western politicians divert the conversation when faced with an uncomfortable answer so they dont have to lie, so talking utter nonsense for hours to the public doesn’t phase him much
