PUTIN CALLED TRANSLATOR

Russian President Vladimir Putin corrected the interpreter during the conversation with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven. Putin spoke about the investment volume in the Russian economy by the "Swedish friends".

Despite him repeating the "friends" word twice, the translator decided to use another word — "partners". Putin drew attention to this fact. He jokingly called the translator a "bandit".

"I said friends, and he translated it to ‘partners’, the bandit," Putin said.
