An initiative to this effect was voiced by Russian film director Yuri Kara at a forum of the All-Russia Popular Front on Tuesday.
“It would be wrong to pinch our consumers in those goods people would like to have. It is applicable to the motion picture industry too. It would be unwise to turn down what is profitable,” Putin said, adding that “the Americans are talented and successful people and there is a lot we can learn from them.”
“So, let us think together whether we shall limit to 25, 50, 70, whatever, percent. But let us not forget about the consumer, about our citizens - what they want to have and what they don’t,” he said. “It seems to be not right to impose anything on people. It is a delicate question and we are ready for discussion.”
At the same time, he said it would be likewise wrong to buy cheap Western productions for Russia’s major television channels.
