No, it's not exactly an accent .It's somethng you pick up while you are abroad but it goes away when you come back home and spend some time there. I saw Marat on tv talking russian in October and he spoke without any noticable 'accent'.
I think I understand it perfectly. It's the same that happens to me when I go to a different spanish region. I come back home with "that" accent, and it disappears in a few days.

I'd say it's Russian and Spanish accent. Russian is a bit more pronounced.
And yeah, Spanish makes everything 'soft', which adds to the mumbling.
I dunno what is worse though: pure Russian accent or what Marat has.
PS: I switched off the sound when i watched the interview.
oh thanks, Vass...you agree with me, you said exactly the same of what i said eventhough the mumbling thing in my opinion it came also from his shy thing...if your dad remembers you Marat, my son remembers me Marat!
and my son is also so shy and has the same mumbling ting...they speak fast and mumbling because they don't want to be noticed so much...I know this is impossible in a public interview but it think this is what happens...so
it is difficult to understand shy and mumbling people!
Tell me about it. I spent four years with people living in "west-flanders", the province the most west in belgium where people have a strong accent and I picked up a lot of words. People will look at me oddly when I use one of those words
