Russia’s president and prime minister have joined forces again, this time to get the harvest in.
Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev went from steering the country to steering a giant combine around a cornfield. Each of them apparently brought in six tons.
Russia’s president and prime minister met farmers and agricultural officials during a visit to one of Russia’s key grain producing regions.
Fishing and farming are still honourable work, more so than big business and big finance institutions. Agriculture was a good point of the old USSR days. We have to eat, not take in too much technology.
