From Putin's point of view, diplomacy is just a way to stall any actions taken against him.

This interview was one of the most honest I've ever seen... This guy answered every single question calmly and what appeared to be true thought in the moment not pre-planned. Maybe the "we need to hurt Russia more than we hurt ourselves" line but damn, I wish all our political figures were as genuine and thoughtful as this guy! 👍🏼

As an European citizen, I'm very much ready to take a hit in quality of life if energy embargo is implemented. It ought to stop the war most effectively and that's the most important thing right now

I don't care what's driving him and his mindset. I care that things are things are bad and getting worse for somebody not even directly involved like me. Worse is the governments pretends like they don't see it. I for one has been hit very hard and at this point, I am more interested in a solution because I don't think an end is near. What is the way forward for the less fortunate ones like me? How do we survive this phase? I am slowly losing my mind.

I want to thank Mr Nehamer for trying and for speaking to the world in English. It's very much appreciated to have someone communicate with us in a second language.

I'm impressed, it's wonderful to see a world leader being candid. We all need leaders who answer questions with clarity. Such a simple thing, yet so rare. I'm grateful not to have to peel through layers of doublespeak and general b.s. Good interview t.y.

What a professional. Sticking to the facts and putting the emotions aside regardless of how bad it is. Great leadership and by the sounds of it a great negotiator.
