Everyone is always looking for dirt on Putin. The Russian blogging scene is always flying rumors at a furious pace and the Western press likes to pick up on those rumors…
Well this is a video from the Telegraph in the UK. They like everyone else take a simple video about the Putin and his wife answering the questions on the census that is going on in Russia now…
Medvedev has been all over the news because of the same census but only Putin gets smeared all over the Western press…
Expressed by the Telegraph:
In a stilted interview, the Putin’s allowed themselves to be filmed in a sitting room at the Russian prime minister’s official residence in Moscow.
Dressed in matching beige and seated on a beige sofa, they were shown fielding questions about their backgrounds, income, and children from a government official helping compile a new Russian census.
Ludmila Putina looked distinctly uncomfortable during the interview, while Mr Putin showered his attention on his black Labrador Koni, who was curled up on the sofa, rather than his wife.
The show of marital bliss failed to convince Russian bloggers who dredged up long-standing rumors that the couple is actually divorced.
So I watched the video and could not see what they were trying to claim…
Oh well we make what we want out of anything…
