Putin prepared to listen to 'constructive criticism'

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview on Sunday that criticism just for the sake of it isn't interesting, but that he is always "happy" to pay attention to constructive criticism.

Speaking to Rossiya-1, Putin said that those outside of government can have a different perspective on important issues and that their opinions also need to be taken into account.

"It doesn’t mean I will realize what I have heard but it is useful to know the entire spectrum of opinions and initiatives," Putin added.
