Ever wonder what Vladimir Putin thinks of tough women?
Not much, it seems.
In an upcoming Showtime documentary by Oliver Stone, the Russian president tells the director that women are held back by their biology.
“I am not a woman, so I don’t have bad days,” he tells Stone. “I am not trying to insult anyone. That’s just the nature of things. There are certain natural cycles.”
Putin, who enjoys being photographed doing macho activities such as riding shirtless on horseback, hunting and judo, then expanded on his theories.
“There are certain natural cycles which men probably have as well, just less manifested. We are all human beings. It’s normal. But you should never lose control.”
Stone obtained many hours of interviews with Putin between July 2015 and February 2017, much of that time being when Russia has been accused of meddling in the 2016 American presidential election and having ties to the Donald Trump campaign.
The first two hour-long episodes of the special air from June 12-15 on Showtime.
