This clip is topical, in light of the BBC recently coming under fire, for spreading the epitome of ‘fake news’ about Russia. Back in 2014, a BBC correspondent ambushed the Russian President in a hallway, asking loaded questions in relation to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.
Putin’s Press Secretary and interpreter, Dmitry Peskov, became a little flustered, not having expected to translate at this time. Nevertheless, Putin had just enough command of the English language to show the BBC back to their place.
“The Ukrainian army is shelling civilian areas, which is something European countries prefer not to notice” – he said.
