Russia expects Qatar diplomatic crisis to be resolved peacefully

Kremlin wants stability and peace in the Gulf despite Qatar diplomatic row

Film director Oliver Stone, whose series of conversations with Vladimir Putin airs next week on Showtime, says he watched Megyn Kelly interview the Russian president on NBC and concluded that "he knew his stuff and she didn't".

Recently, a sneak peek of Oliver Stone's The Putin Interviews from Showtime hit the Internet.

Addressing legislation in Russia, Putin told Stone "there are no restrictions whatsoever" on gay people, deflecting to the fact that other countries, such as hardline Islamic nations, have much more explicit bans on homosexuality, including the death penalty.

In response to question Putin laughed and said, "Well, I'd prefer not to go into the shower with him". The filmmaker said in an interview that there are more direct questions about relations with the United States in the unseen third and fourth episodes.

To which Putin responded: "I am not a woman, so I don't have bad days". "There are certain natural cycles".

It was not immediately clear how Putin answered, though he has repeatedly denied the accusation. One day, this is going to happen to each and every one of us.

The highly anticipated four-part documentary, The Putin Interviews, is airing from June 12 to 15.

Airing consecutively next week in what feels like the tail end of Putin's current media lack-of-charm offensive, the Stone-directed and -hosted extravaganza certainly lacks the deft touch of a Werner Herzog documentary.

Earlier Putin declared that a war between Russian Federation and the United States would have an apocalyptic ending. "He didn't betray the interests of his country".

"Our first contact with Mr Snowden was in China, ' Putin told Stone, adding that Russian Federation had offered him asylum because 'we were told back then that this was a person who wanted to fight against violations of human rights". "The only thing Snowden does, he does publicly".

Stone asked him about Russia's discriminatory "gay propaganda" law, passed in 2013, which has been the basis for raids and violence against gay people.

The clips released so far from Stone's interviews also see Putin musing on life and philosophy.
