The part described in red letters is President Putin’s clear message that it is the U.S. that always interferes with Japan-Russo negotiations.
As the room was burbling with laughter, the reporter, who was instructed to run an errand for his master, brought shame on himself all over the world. I am afraid that he might surprisingly not recognize it until such article and comments are released.

English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: Distressing News – April 30, 2013 –
Silly question of TBS reporter makes President Putin get angry and makes him speechless … Japan-Russia joint press conference
Questioner: I’m Ogada from TBS. Fist, I’d like to ask Prime Minister Abe. Although the Northern Territories issue has not yet been resolved, there is a reality that Russia has been increasing the actual administration there, which is indicated by the fact that foreign companies have got orders for the construction of facilities for geothermal power generation as well as wind power generation. Such situation is considered to be unacceptable to Japan. What do you think of it? And I’d also like to ask President Putin. Do you intend to continue the same polity toward northern territories in the future, too? If so, what do you think about the influence on territorial talks with Japan?
Putin: What I have paid attention to is that the reporter was reading out this question from a piece of paper.
I believe that the reporter got this paper from somebody. I want him to tell the following to that person. This issue was not made by us but has been a heritage from the past, for sixty years.
We truly intend to resolve this issue. We want to resolve it in the form acceptable to each of us. If you want to give cooperation in this process, it is necessary to improve the environment for resolving this issue. To do so, it is important to create a good relationship and trust each other.
If you want to impede this process, it is also possible. All you have to do is to raise a severe and direct issue and ask a direct question. Then you will be able to get the same severe and direct response to such question. I’m afraid, but you have no other choice. Russians and people who have Russian citizenship are living in these areas just the same as in Russia and other areas.

Obvious difference in brilliance has come out.

The guy who drew up the questionnaire might have run away.

The reporter who asked a question:

KGB has started uploading.

Coolness of Putin made me laugh.
23:Iriomote wild cat (Gifu Pref.): April 30, 2013 (Tues.) 00:45:48.92
The reporter was asked to give a question by the force for which it is inconvenient to establish improved relations between Japan and Russia. Putin’s answer indicated that he detected it, didn’t it?
28:Amur wild cat (Eastern Japan): April 30, 2013 (Tues.) 00:47:18.68
As Japanese reporters can just run an errand for specific forces or vested interest, their dullness comes out once they leave the country.
34: Bombay (Niigata Pref.): April 30, 2013 (Tues.) 00:48:58.45
Before acquiring an international way of thinking, the reporter should think deeply of what to be asked.
36:Othellot (Kanto.Koshinetsu): April 30, 2013 (Tues.) 00:49:29.28
Shame on you!
You don’t need to come back.
