Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told the Daily Storm that & nbsp; Sokurov's remark was unprofessional and & nbsp; therefore provoked a harsh reaction from Putin.

The president reacted rather harshly, because the director, unfortunately, was very unprofessional and without knowledge of the subject began to touch on very important, delicate topics. Dmitry Peskov

“ This is something that the president does not & nbsp; tolerate. But & nbsp; he & nbsp; directly to him [Sokurov] about & nbsp; said this & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; added a Kremlin spokesman.

However, the Russian leader did not & nbsp; agree with this point of view. According to & nbsp; Putin's opinion, from & nbsp; Sokurov's part is “ not & nbsp; a speech, but & nbsp; a manifesto, a set of fears that & nbsp; some & nbsp; part of our citizens ''. The President noted that the & nbsp; vote on the & nbsp; amendments to the & nbsp; Constitution proved that & nbsp; separatism in & nbsp; Russia no one wants & nbsp; including the Chechen people.

Is the Russian people interested in the collapse of the Russian Federation? Do you want to turn us into Muscovy? This is what NATO wants to do. Vladimir Putin

Dear Alexander Nikolaevich, do you & nbsp; want a repetition of Yugoslavia on & nbsp; our territory? & Raquo; & nbsp; & mdash; the Russian leader turned to & nbsp; Sokurov.

With this, the member of the HRC tried to insert a remark about & nbsp; the Constitution, which is “ a hundred years old '', but Putin urged him not to & nbsp; turn the conversation into & nbsp; talk show: & laquo; Calmly! & Nbsp; we & nbsp; same & nbsp; now with & nbsp; you are not & nbsp; discussion. & Nbsp; we have an exchange of views, and & nbsp; then & nbsp; we & nbsp; now we will turn into & nbsp; some kind of talk show and & nbsp; we will interrupt each other without & nbsp; stop & raquo ;.

The President also reproached the director for & nbsp; what & nbsp; what & nbsp; ; that & nbsp; raised the topic of interethnic relations: “ This is not permissible even for you. These are dangerous toys & raquo ;.
