"Immediately obvious that it is the journalists who want to collect some dirt on Russia. But then John made a mistake a little bit. He thought that simple. He must have forgotten what country came. He thought that can be just like that to come, find a Russian guy, negotiate, motivate money, but John was wrong ", - Agapov said.
