The former US president also called the Russian leader “a surprisingly sincere person.”
Former US President Bill Clinton considers Russian President Vladimir Putin “a surprisingly sincere person” and is sure that he could co-write a very interesting adventure novel with him. This confidence was expressed by Clinton, who headed the US administration in 1993-2001, in a podcast of the world service of the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC.
An interview with new fragments of Clinton’s statements was published on Wednesday. It was dedicated to the beginning of sales of his book “The President’s Daughter,” written in collaboration with the American writer James Patterson.
“Putin could write a very interesting adventure novel. If we could persuade him to do it, “the 42nd US president said when asked by the BBC which world leaders he could collaborate with in the field of literature. “Putin seems surprisingly sincere,” he added.” Putin’s life is like an adventure novel,” Patterson added in turn, and Clinton agreed with him.
“I also like the mysteries of the Second World War, I think that [former British Prime Minister Winston] Churchill (1874-1965) was also a great person with whom we could write an adventure novel together. We would have had a lot of fun,” Clinton added.
