Mr Putin," the erotic 2011 calendar portraying 12 pretty
students of journalism of Moscow State University, costing 260
roubles (around USD 9), went on sale at a prominent shopping
centre here on the eve of Prime Minister Putin`s birthday.
Each month page on the calender has a picture
accompanied by a personal message to Putin hinting at his some
of the notable public activities of the last summer, including
the dousing of wildfires.
"You put out the forest fires, but I`m still burning,"
says Lena Gornostayeva, who posed for March.
Miss December even left her number for Putin to
call her for a personal birthday message.
