Putin's Annual Press Conference

Putin gives his yearly Press Conference
Watch in full

Wherein he made the now famous quote about why Turkey decided to shoot down a Russian jet in Syria:

As for whether The Kremlin thinks the US was in any way involved in the downing of the Russian warplane, Putin said he wasn’t aware of any American involvement, but did suggest (literally) that Erdogan may have been trying to kiss Washington’s ass or, in Bloomberg’s more politically correct terminology, “Turkey may have been trying to curry favor with the largest member of NATO”.
Putin: “If someone in Turkey decided to kiss Americans on a certain body part, I don’t know whether it was right or not.”
