Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with Director Oliver stone, excerpts of which appeared in the online edition of Newsweek, said that the Russian security services operate exclusively within the law.
Putin gave stone the big interview that will appear in a film on American cable channel Showtime on June 12-15.
“I think they are working fine and only within the current legislation”, — Putin answered a question about the activities of Russian special services.
“This is the first and the second, to follow the allies, if you really consider them allies, not vassals, it is indecent. This undermines trust and, ultimately, to the detriment of its own national security,” the President added.
