Staunton, Nov. 21 – After the Italian authorities seized millions of dollars’ worth of Dmitry Medvedev’s property there, the former Russian president said he regretted that he didn’t have time to sell it and distribute his earnings to Russian orphans. Of course, Russians say, he still has time to do that with his properties in Russia but doesn’t seem in any hurry to do so.
That is one of the Russian anecdotes Moscow journalist Tatyana Pushkaryova has assembled and posted online (publizist.ru/blogs/107374/47184/-). Among the best of the rest are the following:
· Igor Strelkov wants to run for Russian president from his jail cell. That shouldn’t be so hard as Putin is running from within his refrigerator.
· Russians blame all their problems on President Zelensky. At least one of those words is true.
· After US President Joe Biden published an article criticizing Putin, the Kremlin leader decided to order that the American leader be arrested in absentia for discrediting the leader of Russia.
· Russians have much more love for their history than Americans do. After all, they’re ready to listen to stories about centuries’ old events while the Wall Street Journal insists that younger Americans are put off by Biden’s use of language from his younger days.
