After Putin responded that there’s no discrimination against gays in Russia, Stone inquired what the president would do if he were aboard a submarine and had to share a shower room with a gay man.

Oliver Stone’s interview with Vladimir Putin is scheduled to be aired on the Showtime channel on June 12-15.
