MOSCOW, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Foreign media are commenting on an interview which Russian President Vladimir Putin gave to Russian and foreign television in the run-up to the Sochi Olympic Games last week.
An ABC political observer, George Stephanopoulos, who was among the interviewers, is quoting the Russian leader as saying that the Olympic Games will give a chance to unite Russian society and show a new Russia to the world.
Chinese newspaper Huantsu shibao notes that the forthcoming Olympic Games will promote Russia’s relations with foreign partners in the interests of the country and the whole nation.
The newspaper is sure that the world will get an opportunity to learn a new Russia during the Olympic Games.
China’s CCTV correspondent who also had a chance to pose a question to Putin ahead of the Olympic Games emphasized that the Russian leader had been particularly grateful to China and said that China and Russia were good friends and strategic partners.
The interview found a live response in the Chinese Internet. Many websites accompanied the interview with a photo by Putin smiling friendly to a Chinese TV correspondent who had handed over the questions of Chinese Internet users to the Russian president.
The CCTV website had received more than two million proposals on questions to Putin.
