Putin a Little Bit Grouchy Before New Years…

By | January 2, 2011

Putin had a meeting just before New Years. It involved the governor of the Moscow Region, Boris Gromov, Energy Minister Sergey Shmatko and the head of the Moscow United Electric Company Nikolay Shvets...

“You promised that by 6pm today electricity would be back on. It is 6 now,” Putin said. “35 villages, 4,000 people are still without power.

”I have an idea: you go to these villages and celebrate the New Year together with these people!” Putin suggested.

As a result, all three officials spent their New Year visiting villages left without electricity.

I think that works better than firing them… 🙂
