In Russia they are no rules or regulations on what they can ask. They also get honest answers because the interviews rarely make the headlines in the US.
I think that is pretty key. My knowledge of the Finnish language is not that good, but I believe Timonen is much more candid when he is interviewed by some news paper/television channel from there as well.
