To question those who rode the bus (for foreign guests ), I said, all is well”, â€” said the President.
“I, unfortunately, had nothing to say until the full details. Five minutes, maybe seven passed. There was a second call, and the same chief of staff at the security line said it was a drunken prank, the plane sent to Turkey and soon sits down,” â€” said the head of state.
The head of the FSB Alexander Bortnikov, also starring in the movie, explained that “the President took full responsibility, he does not shift responsibility to others.”More important news Telegram-channel “Tape days”. Signed!
