Putin Says US Under Obama Was Not Agreement-Capable

Doesn't mean it's any better now

Former U.S. President Barack Obama did not keep his promises made while he was in office, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said in an interview with American filmmaker Oliver Stone.

The interview appears in a Ukrainian-American director’s documentary scheduled to premiere on Russian state television next week.

“You know, Obama is no longer president, but there are certain things we don’t talk about publicly,” Russia’s state-run RIA Novosti news agency quoted Putin as saying to Stone.

“In any case, I can say that our agreements reached in [a] telephone conversation were not fulfilled by the American side,” Putin said, declining to go further into details.
