Vladimir Putin goes after NBC Reporter Keir Simmons for trying to silence him during an interview.
VIDEOKINGS — During his interview with NBC, President of Russia Vladimir Putin claimed that reporter Keir Simmons did not let him speak because he didn’t like Putin’s replies.
Vladimir Putin: “Let me answer, you just asked me a question. You don’t like my reply, and you shut me up instantly. It’s inappropriate. No. No. If— you muster patience and let me finish saying what I mean to say. Everything will be clear to you. But you are not liking my answer. You don’t want my answer to be heard by your audience. That is the problem. You are shutting me down. Is that a free expression— or is that free expression by US standards?”
