Putin: I am not a Woman, so I don't have bad days

Putin: I am not a Woman, so I don't have bad days

Stone asked Putin in a part of the interview published on Tuesday. "There are certain natural cycles", Putin said.

The unusually smooth auto journey through Moscows normally traffic-clogged streets isnt the only unusual moment in The Putin Interviews, the Oscar-winning directors four-part documentary.

"I am not a woman, so I don't have bad days", he tells Stone while giving a tour of the Kremlin's gilded throne room.

Putin, who once banned a Photoshopped image of himself wearing lipstick, was telling Stone how he held the country with aplomb and used the most sexist means to do so.

"In a hot war is the United States dominant?" the American director asked the Russian president.

The four-part Putin's interview is expected to be aired by Showtime on June 12-15. Former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump last month, is due to testify to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday about investigations into the allegations.

Spelling bee champ asked to spell 'covfefe,' gets it wrong
Ananya was on the stage with confetti falling all around her as her parents and brother ran to embrace her in celebration. Vanya Shivashankar was co-winner of the bee in 2015. "That's the only good answer we've heard about that word in days".

If the director of 1995's Nixon was hoping to have his own version of David Frost's famous and revealing 1977 Nixon Interviews, the first half of The Putin Interviews stumbles in that ambition, equating access with insight when the two are not the same.

In the short clip of the documentary, Stone claimed he held credible information that Putin had survived "at least five assassination attempts", which the Russian leader implied had been successfully foiled by his security team. He told Stone that he lifts weights and then swims every day.

The President also answered questions on American whistleblower Edward Snowden who was granted Russian asylum, Hillary Clinton and his controversial views on homosexuality which human rights groups have repeatedly criticised. Putin demurs, saying only that the US Administration views Russian Federation as "a competitor".

Russia, Putin says, is forced to take countermeasures over the ever-increasing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation threat and armed military build-up on Russia's borders.

But asked if he'd take a shower in a submarine next to a gay man, the Russian leader replied, laughing: "Well, I prefer not to go to the shower with him.

We have to aim our missile systems at facilities that are threatening us", Putin said. "Nobody would survive" a war between nuclear superpowers, he said.
