Russia: Putin annoyed with reporters, ‘beautiful but does not listen’ – Europe

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been accused of sexist attitudes against the CNBC reporter Hadley Gamble. Putin called her “beautiful” and “pretty” and immediately pointed out that she did not understand what he was saying. The subject of the dispute was gas prices and the interview took place during the Russian energy week.
“She is a beautiful woman, really pretty. But I tell her one thing and she immediately tells me the opposite, as if she had not heard what I said,” Putin noted during the debate. “We are increasing supplies to Europe, Gazprom alone by 10%. Russia has increased supplies by 15%. We are increasing, not decreasing, supplies. Did I really say something so difficult to understand?” having been pressed on the matter by the journalist.
