NEW YORK (AP) — Elton John on Friday called out Russian President Vladimir Putin for saying that liberalism is "obsolete" and conflicts with the "overwhelming majority" in many countries. In a story published by the Financial Times newspaper , Putin said "the liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population."
