Putin accused of sexism for saying US anchor was too beautiful

Russian President Vladimir Putin was accused of sexism after he said a US news anchor was too beautiful and pretty to understand him. The President of Russia had made the remark during a live public interview with CNBC journalist Hadley Gamble at a panel for the Russian Energy Week in Moscow. Ms Gamble quizzed the European leader about claims that the country was withholding gas supplies to Europe in bid to drive up prices and pressure the Russian leadership.

Ms Gamble rebuked the Russian leader, telling him face-to-face that she heard him perfectly. The visibly frustrated Mr Putin retorted: "Except, it got given all the facts," he said: "You don t supply gas to Europe through pipelines." European Supply is increasing. Gazprom by 10 percent. Russia has increased its cargo supply by 15 percent.
