a democratic president has done a good job promoting the new start treaty and the senate why did you speak to him so late to yesterday. you know he had to take some time out he had to rest to like a re out of person he has the right to rest so he took some time out to celebrate christmas that's why i called him so late i think it was eleven pm i fully agree with you he did a very good job under difficult conditions he managed to you make could his senate ready for this document the new start treaty our security for the next two years will be based on this treaty in an arc in same general that it is very easy for me to work with president obama he can really listen to you and hear you he does not have stereotypes he's not limited by stereotypes and probably what is the most important thing for a politician he keeps his word would be a new start
a with the w. two you'll or the ratifying another important treaty on nuclear cooperation. on international issues he keeps his word saw i hope he has a good rest he did a good job and this is what i told him yesterday i told him barak have some rest no but i could because they would work with cause when you said that our political system as showing symptoms of stagnation on one hand we have this in the official fall attacks on the other hand. the situation in st politics as as we have seen. the protests but you know you said we have to print gay us in the streets and outworked butts. the what do you think leasing response is sufficient here up there that you need him for snow police should at least act quickly and effectively sometimes police should only self the fluid and who he was
quoting to law but the question i think to deal with our police has demonstrated he was qualities in some cases even though we do you have some problems with our police but our response should not only be limited to police and that you politics should not be taken out in the streets politics jude law and there can be street bolding spittal it should be only within the legal framework of course we can have picket lines and rallies and demonstrations we can but you should they should always be sanctioned we're a little bit progressing towards open democracy in some cases we will reintroduce the years and some institutions are going to have it it's long be forgotten but there should be another dimension to the politics of the bodies should feel responsible at least by for the interview with the authority they have received our
main party united russia should not just to pull marines to preview. it should be tapped full and strong and should promote the right people as for corrupt officials and those who don't want to work properly with it should be demoted or even punished when other parties should be invited in to discuss all the issues that affect that they're in the opposition does not mean that they should not participate in discussion than you. could have only legislation is a. reason russia's political life is dominated by you and mr putin. can tell me if. any other president of politicians in russia and if there are any perhaps you would like to name someone who you would like to see as an ally in the future or maybe some adversaries so there's a really dark thank you politically we do you have politicians like this in our
country at that and actually you know some of the names i can remember is some outstanding people like the political faction leaders in our state duma these are well known politicians and i'm not certain about that these people have been for decades on earth political landscape and some politicians are not in the state duma but they are still well known some call them outstanding politicians some people criticize them but they're also well known there are some well known politicians public politicians like the sake of. the more enough cusp are of one there are also public figures of course people may have different opinions about them each one of them has his own base but there are also public politicians but the main basis thought was something we don't mention little because they'd be self talented people in our country and beds where i think we have the future presidents
future prime ministers future state duma day. vs our country has always been a reach she would tell him that people on the poland. deal to someone they're much completionist the most dramatic event of this year was the events at the village of course shelves. or. russia as we know we've seen many occasions this year in russian and in russia where our citizens are. stuck between officials on one side and gangs are glass crime on the other side of the structures official structures who pressurize our citizens as a circus show stand there was the story and it was for styling the arrest of the mayor and girls how do we fight that. this is a very important subject and i'm grateful to you for raising it if we all remember
what happened in one thousand nine hundred dead time i didn't work for the government will i was just living in petersburg and many of us at the time had the impression that up there at the federal level which you can from quite often all sorts of people work including criminals and if they penetrated the state duma. in other government bodies i think that over the past two years we needed a very good progress in getting rid of criminals in the can government bodies being up here we were able to exclude. at the federal level and at the regional level but that the municipal level. at the local level with me any people use a very different code word for their conduct and we really need to purge i've course i don't mean the way it happened in the one nine hundred thirty s.
but we need to exclude those people. from if they often are members of our ruling party. and this doesn't mean that the party should turn a blind eye to that he would know these people should be exposed ideally. i would like you know the case of how the cost of the picture of dorian gray as applied to the russian business every businessman does what is accused of but he is the one taking the blame and his associates latitude as well. do you think. our court systems might be too harsh on these people. as a lawyer and as a person what do you think about that yeah. well first let me say what i think of it as a president well as president i think the following we need neither the president
nor any other government official. does not have a right to you go through and speak about his or her position on this case or on the any other case before the court gives its verdict this is quite obvious but over that. was a done in spite of what's been practiced in russia of for decades did we recognize it didn't we recognized a surprise for hours on spies are you talking about you know what small eyes what did with. me what conclusions did we make folks from the incidents don't think i'm not saying it became clear to me gods are modern russia has an illegal spying service as it is. you know old people who work for you know our secret services our russian citizens first and foremost they are not
cannon forder they're not just heroes who are a separate feist by the state in the past and the soviet union and sometimes even russia preferred not to talk about this this was a mistake our priority in this situation was to get our people out of there and we did it perhaps first and foremost because i immediately admitted that they were russian citizens and this is normal furthermore recently i had a meeting with our foreign intelligence service celebrated the anniversary and i told them if they will do the same thing again if you are illegal agents or official cover agents are in trouble because those people are taking care of our each trysts with them now as for me he intelligence there are all kinds of intelligence there is still. official cover agents you have official coverage send
not official coverage and if you say you don't have a legal agency that you know this probably is a small country without serious geopolitical interests you and your british continuous could very well thank you very much for this conversation of us who did it from ourselves our audience and i wish you happy new year even though i think it would be naive to say we hope it will be better than this year although this year was difficult for us you just have a happy year thank you very much colleagues i'd like to say to all of you and our viewers that we were here to congratulate everybody on the new year and i promised another thing i will do this one more time you know when. i thank you with.
