Former US Secretary of State and losing candidate in the past presidential election, Hillary Clinton, in an interview with CBS News, called the Russian president “a white authoritarian leader” and suggested that Vladimir Putin “disliked” her for “believing in democracy and the rule of law.”
Clinton said with pain in her voice that she was “surprised and deeply upset” by Putin’s admiration for many Americans because he is “a white authoritarian leader who kills journalists and his political enemies who runs a repressive regime that takes aggressive steps against neighboring countries, who considers himself an adversary of the United States. “
“Do not doubt, Putin also had a personal dislike for me, in part because, as Secretary of State of the United States, I confronted him and very clearly showed that we believe in democracy, we believe in the rule of law.
All this irritated him. We also supported the peoples’ aspirations for greater independence and freedom in countries such as Ukraine – and this was clearly annoying,” Clinton said.
