Medvedev jokes about Putin`s ‘frequent lateness’ for meetings
London: Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has reportedly made comments about President Vladimir Putin`s frequent lateness for meetings.
“Colleagues, somebody should be extremely punctual, while somebody else is exhausting all the limits for being late,” The Telegraph quoted Medvedev, as saying, as he smiled wryly on a day when his mentor was more than an hour late for an event in southern Russia.
According to the paper, Medvedev made his comments when let his guard down after an interview with five Russian television stations when he failed to realise the cameras were still rolling.
Medvedev also talked about Father Christmas and aliens, the paper said.
“I believe in Father Frost. But not too deeply. But anyway, you know, I`m not one of those people who are able to tell the kids that Father Frost does not exist,” he said in a jovial reply to a question about Russia``s equivalent of Santa Claus.
When a journalist asked whether the president is handed secret files on aliens when receiving the briefcase needed to activate Russia``s nuclear arsenal, Medvedev replied back playfully.
"Along with the briefcase with nuclear codes, the president of the country is given a special ``top secret`` folder. This folder in its entirety contains information about aliens who visited our planet," Medvedev said.
