The Russian President came under fire as he said that he never made mistakes and never had bad days because he’s not a woman and the absence of ‘natural cycles’ makes him a good leader. “I am not trying to insult anyone. That’s just the nature of things. There are certain natural cycles,” Putin told Oliver Stone. Stone, who recently directed the film Snowden, was given extensive access to the secretive Russian leader between 2015 and 2017, for his documentary ‘The Putin Interviews’. And this is not the first misogynistic remark by Putin. In 2016, Putin responded to Hillary Clinton comparing him to Hitler by saying, “It’s best not to argue with women”. Putin also attracted controversy in 2006, when he reportedly joked that President Moshe Katsav of Israel was a “mighty man” following allegations that he raped several members of his staff. A Russian journalist told the BBC that he overheard the Russian President joking: “What a mighty man he turns out to be! He raped 10 women — I would never have expected this from him”
