MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the US leader told The Atlantic newspaper that Putin was "scrupulously polite, very frank" and "not completely stupid," stating that their talks have always been "very businesslike."
"Key statements made by the US president are reported to Putin. In this case, yes, we did take a look at this interview. Without a doubt, we have taken note of what was said in this interview," Peskov told reporters.
The Kremlin spokesman refused to report on the Russian leader’s reaction to Obama's remarks.
