Kir Simmons, American journalist working for NBC, intrigued the audience of plenary session of the 3rd international forum “Russian energy week” by asking Russian President Vladimir Putin a spicy question, Russia Today reported.
Simmons asked Putin whether Russia is planning to meddle with the US 2020 Presidential election. “Will definitely do that,” Putin jokingly responded.
Social Media are now flooded with questions of who Simmons is and who dare he ask such questions. Some have suggested the American is just a provocateur, others argued he is an honest and straightforward man.
Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya recalled that: “in June of 2017, when media launched a huge campaign against me, Kir Simmons was the only one whom I trusted enough to be interviewed. He is a real pro – intelligent, competent and not engaged British-American journalist. The best one I got to meet in two years,” Veselnitskaya added.
