When a reporter bluntly asked him to defend the accusation that he was a “killer” in an interview in the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin grinned and snickered.
When NBC’s Keir Simmons asked bluntly if he was involved in the assassination of some of his political opponents and critics, the Russians seemed very happy.
Putin said: “During my tenure, I have become accustomed to various angles, various fields, various excuses, various reasons, different calibers, and fierce attacks. None of them surprised me.” 90-minute clip NBC News Interview.
Putin continues to believe that his killer representatives are excessive hype influenced by the Jinsi-style storyteller.
“So, in terms of harsh words, I think this is an overall expression of American culture.
“Of course, in Hollywood, there are also something hidden deep in Hollywood-masculinity, which can be regarded as film art. But this is part of American political culture and is considered normal.
“By the way, it’s not here, it’s not normal here.”
The Russian leader then seemed to praise former President Donald Trump.
“Well, even now, I believe that former US President Trump is an extraordinary person, a talented person, otherwise he would not become the President of the United States.
“He is a colorful person. You may like him or you may not like him.”
He admired Trump as an outsider to the real estate tycoon.
“But he is not from the American establishment,” Putin said. “He has not participated in important political activities before. Some people like it and some don’t, but this is true.”
Putin avoided this question after being read aloud some of the names he was accused of participating in the elimination.
More importantly, he was told that not only President Biden but also the late Senator John McCain called him a killer, while former President Donald Trump did not condemn the killer label during his tenure.
Simmons pursued Putin’s direct response.
“I don’t think I heard you answer this question, a direct question, Mr. President,” he said.
Putin retorted: “I did answer, I did answer.
“If you let me, I will add.
“I have heard dozens of such allegations, especially during the anti-terrorism activities of our northern party group.
“When this happens, I am always guided by the interests of the Russian people. The Russian country.
“in [sic] As far as who calls someone, as far as labels are concerned, this is at least not something I worry about. “
Simmons even listed the names of some of the dead related to former KGB members.
Putin turned a steely gaze.
“Listen, you know, I don’t want to be rude, but it looks like some kind of indigestion, it’s just verbal indigestion.
“You mentioned a lot of people who did suffer at different points in time for various reasons and died at the hands of different people.”
He spoke sadly about the former Russian Minister of Information Mikhail Lessing, who reportedly died of blunt head trauma in 2015.
“I regret that he has not been with us until today-we have found some other criminals who committed these crimes.
“They are in prison.”

“[Biden] It is completely different from Trump because President Biden is a professional,” Putin said.
“Almost his entire adulthood was spent politically.”
