"I call him Donald": Putin on his relations with Trump
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he and his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump address each other by the first name.
"He calls me Vladimir, I call him Donald," the Russian leader told TASS in an interview for the project entitled "20 Questions with Vladimir Putin".
The Russian head of state confessed it was difficult to say who of the U.S. presidents, starting from Bill Clinton, who left the White House in January 2001, he felt most at ease with. "I had fairly constructive relationships with each of them," Putin noted, adding that he shared "good relations" with George W. Bush, who was the U.S. president in 2001-2009.
