Obama Criticizes Russian State-Run Media

by: Leigh Munsil | Politico

The state-run media in Russia is allowing President Vladimir Putin to get away with actions that aren’t in his country’s best interests, President Barack Obama says in an interview with VICE.

 

“The Russian economy is taking a hammer blow because of their incursions into Ukraine. It’s terrible for the future of Russia. But because ordinary Russians aren’t getting good information, there’s no check on what Putin may do,” Obama said in an interview set to air Friday on HBO, obtained by POLITICO.
