I’ve been laying into Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov on this blog for not giving enough of a shit about the apocalyptic conditions in his city to come back from vacation. Also, for taking care of his honey bees, but not his citizens.
Today, his deputy, Vladimir Resin, who filled in while Luzhkov vacat– treated his sports injury, came out with a compelling defense of his boss.
“The mayor has accumulated 370 vacation days,” Resin says. “He could’ve vacationed for a whole year.”
Mayor Luzhkov, I apologize.
