'I'm not trying to insult anyone...' says Putin as he insults women

Russian President and all-round nice guy, Vladimir Putin, again showed his support for the feminist movement in a recent interview.

Said no one ever!


No, unfortunately Vlad was busy saying some fairly ridiculous things about women and our ‘natural cycles’.

If that made you gag a little, you weren’t the only ones.

Over the last two years, screenwriter Oliver Stone has conducted dozens of interviews with the Russian president, and this was just one of the vomit-inducing things he had to say.

In an effort to get into the psyche of the former KGB operative, Stone asked the president if he ever has off days.

To which Putin responded: “I am not a woman, so I don’t have bad days.”

“I am not trying to insult anyone. That’s just the nature of things. There are certain natural cycles.”

The interviews are all being used in a four-part film which will air next week on Showtime.

So, if you're looking for more cringe-worthy insights into the female anatomy or admissions of interference in the US election, might be one to check out - but we’re not sure how many more of those types of statements we can endure.
