He answered negatively to the question, straining his presence of the camera.
“It’s not that strained or not strained. The fact that it wasn’t until that time a part of my life. On the contrary, I still tried to be a little so not a public person”, — said the head of state.
“Strangely, no,” replied the President to the question, I had to give up some habits because of the almost constant presence of journalists. “Why? Because she [life, work] really mean, but in my former life all the time tried to behave like me… always watching. So that’s weird, but it happened. May be due to previous profession. But… but to say that that’s something I had to radically change, perhaps not,” — said Putin.
