Putin is no stranger to Russian accent.
As president, he has frequently called Russian-speakers to his daily briefings and occasionally even to the Kremlin.
In a 2013 speech, he noted that, “as an American citizen, I can be more than happy to speak to Russian speakers in the United States.
I can also be more sensitive to the fact that they speak a different language.”
The White House did not respond to a request for comment on this article.
The Russian president’s ability to maintain his Russian accent is a problem for the White House.
While Putin has often said that he uses Russian to communicate with the people of Russia, in reality, he is more likely to use English.
The Trump administration is not averse to using foreign languages for official purposes, as is the case for the U.S. government, such as for immigration and the Department of Justice.
In the case of Russian officials, however, they often use Russian as a way to convey their message.
