MOSCOW, March 13. /TASS/. Russia’s Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that he expected CNN’s forthcoming documentary on the Russian leader to be biased but was thankful to the documentary’s author for the possibility to make the Kremlin’s position clear.
"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," Peskov stressed, sharing his opinion about what the upcoming CNN documentary about Russian President Vladimir Putin titled: "The Most Powerful Man in the World" would be.
"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," the Kremlin spokesman emphasized, noting that he had not yet watched the new documentary and is looking forward to the opportunity of doing so. The Kremlin spokesman who was interviewed for the new documentary pointed out that the one thing "deserving a positive mark" was the fact that its author had provided the possibility "to outline our position on the issues that were touched upon in it."
The Russian presidential spokesman added that the documentary’s author, Fareed Zakaria, was well-known to the Kremlin as he had already met with the Russian leader and had been a moderator at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
