So what happens when one of the most pro-freedom men on the planet asks a direct question to one of the most anti-freedom men on the planet? Well, the anti-freedom guy lies, of course.
The only truthful thing Putin said in his answer was that Russia didn’t have the money or the technology to be quite as 1984ish as the United States.
I can only imagine what would happen if Putin was in control of a $17 trillion economy. Damn.
