According to RT, President Putin said that relationships at a personal level with world leaders are very important, but in some cases, Mr. Putin often addresses him without official titles.

In the first online dialogue with the people and media in his new term, which took place on June 7, Mr. Putin was asked which leader he used the official way of addressing or the somewhat partial way of addressing him.

In Russian, there are two words that mean `friend`: `tu` and `vu`.

Mr. Putin said: “With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, we often use unofficial names and addresses.

Mr. Putin also used an unorthodox term that means he is close to French President Emmanuel Macron, even though the two leaders have experienced a lot of tension over sanctions issues and the situation in Syria over the past year.

Behind the strong, tough image often seen in Western media, Mr. Putin attaches great importance to friendliness in politics.

However, there is one friend of Russia for whom Mr. Putin never uses an unorthodox address.
