Posner: I never sing the Russian anthem, he is Stalin
And this title looks like on UkroSMI: “For me, working for the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company is already a bogus” - a quote from interview. Well, what then is Mr. Posner working specifically on Russian TV? ..
One of the questions touched the World Cup in Russia, and in the end he went to the political plane. Posner was asked which of the two countries that are actually native to Posner, he is a fan of the tournament - for Russia or for France. Posner said that he was a fan of France, and for the Russian team he added that he was “happy for her, but it is unlikely that she will go further after the match with Spain or Portugal.”
Posner asked if it would happen that way, and the Russian team will meet with the French team at the World Cup 2018, what will the anthem he sing? Posner said he would sing Marseillaise, and he basically does not sing the Russian anthem.
The conversation turned to freedom of speech in Russia. According to Vladimir Pozner, small media in Russia have everything in freedom with speech: “They can do anything.”
After this, Posner added that the federal channels are controlled by the Kremlin.
Ukrainian journalists asked: Is it different in the USA?
Posner said that previously it was exactly different, and now in the US there are problems with freedom of speech in the media, since large corporations determine the information policy.
