    Here is how it originally sounded:

    Sabine Fischer: Sabine Fischer, Science and Politics Foundation, Berlin.

    Mr President, you were very critical about the West’s policy regarding its relations with
    Russia. Indeed, many aspects that you have touched upon call for an in-depth critical discussion. At the same time, we know that in any relationship – whether between countries or between people – both sides make mistakes. So I have a question. What political mistakes, in your opinion, has Russia made in its relations with the West over the past 15 years and what needs to be done, what conclusions need to be drawn for the future of these relations?

    Vladimir Putin: Our most serious mistake in relations with the West is that we trusted you too much. And your mistake is that you took that trust as weakness and abused it. It is therefore necessary to put this behind us, turn the page and move on, building our relations on the basis of mutual respect and treating each other as equal partners of equal value.

    BTW, ^ this is a site with Putin's answers to all kinds of questions about everything which is going on now in the world (Syria, NK, Ukraine, relationship with US, and so on and on). If anybody wants to know what Putin thinks about that, take a chance to find it out. I'm posting that just because Western Media either doesn't inform its audience about that or informs with bias.

    He was asked about Trump too.

    Andrei Sushentsov: Andrei Sushentsov, MGIMO University, Valdai Club.
    Mr President, a years ago you said you were ready to work with any US president and that you did not know what kind of president Mr Trump would be if he won. The impression is that Trump is breaking all records in unpredictability. And it seems that cooperation with Hillary Clinton perhaps would have been more comprehensible. What is your take on this situation?

    Vladimir Putin: We do not know how things could have turned out in reality either, do we?

    With regard to the incumbent president, as I said a year ago – and I can repeat this now – we will do our job. And I am saying now: we are working with the president that the American people have elected. As for unpredictability, he is not the only one to blame. It also has to do with the intense opposition in the country.

    After all, he is being prevented from carrying out any of his election platforms and plans. In health care, in other spheres. The moment he makes a decision on migrants, a court immediately blocks it. This is happening all the time. So to say that he is the only source of this unpredictability – no, this depends on the entire US political system. Nevertheless, we will work with the partners that we have.

    The United States is a great power, the world’s largest economic and military power. We will continue working despite all difficulties. That is, of course, if they also want this. If they do not, we will not.

    Putin always says Russia will work with EVERYBODY who wants to work with Russia,
    Putin: but our advantage is that we never play double games with anyone. We are always honest in relationships with our partners. We voice our opinions openly.

    If we do not agree with something, we will say it directly that our opinion is this and this. We take your views into account, we respect them but we will do this and this. That gives us a great advantage because we are predictable, unlike many other countries. I think this, and not our military potential, is exactly what motivates our partners to develop relations with Russia.

    He's an Anti-Russian, Ukrainian troll, who posts the same pictures and same fake info in his numerous threads. The content of those threads is basically the same, only names are different. You can find those threads in each corner of USMB.
