One of the main driving forces behind Russian President Vladimir Putin’s politics is to strive for international law and order.
Such an opinion was stated today in an exclusive interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, with the American director Oliver Stone. His new documentary about the Russian president made its debut on television in the United States from 19 to 22 June, and will be soon shown in Russia’s “First Channel”.
The Russian leader criticized those politicians who do not look 25 to 50 years in advance, and are guided by short-term interests.
“Putin is committed to a working international order” – Stone said when asked about the long-term facilities of the Russian leader. – “He constantly repeats it, the concept of fundamental law, mutual understanding between the two countries, based on sovereignty -be it Iraq, Libya, Syria or any other state in the Middle East. “
“He is a lawyer by training” – recalled the director. “Without this framework, if the United States continue to operate in a unipolar world, and it would be more correct to say acting unilaterally, this will collapse the existing world order” – Stone said. – ” Putin wants to return to a balance.”
“He does not seek to expand Russia” – says Stone – “I’ve never heard him talk about it. He took the new Russian border, although the 25 million Russian remained abroad. ” (After the collapse of the USSR.)
The four-hour documentary film The Putin Interviews was filed over two years – the summer of 2015 to early 2017. He met and talked with the President of the Russian Federation more than ten times.
It is noteworthy that the original film was to last two hours. However, when it was completed, the director refused to reduce the final result of 4 hours.
