Kremlin expects ‘biased’ Putin documentary from CNN. Here’s why
An upcoming documentary on Russian President Vladimir Putin has been made in line with his “further demonization,” according to Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
The upcoming CNN documentary is titled “The Most Powerful Man in the World.”
“Naturally, it would be too optimistic to believe that some media outlet would be able to break through the framework of the hysterical emotional background that unfortunately prevails in America towards our country,” TASS Russian News Agency, in an article published online on March 13, quoted Peskov as saying.
“Apparently, this is caused by the fact that the documentary, in all appearances, has been made with a biased slant and in line with the further demonization of our country and our president,” he said.
But Peskov was thankful to the documentary’s author anyway, saying that the latter gave the possibility “to outline our position on the issues that were touched upon in it.”
