Putin: mystery solved… :)

March 16, 2015

Summary: Mr Putin’s love of a good chess competition…?

I am a bit late into this “where is the President” story, but I just found this on Twitter.  Apparently Mr Putin has opened the Women’s World Chess Championship in Sochi today.  If the President’s spokesmen and media machine think this is going to dispell the excitement, I think they will be mistaken.  This photograph looks, er, slightly unconvincing, and devoid of any date, time, locational clues, chess logos etc.  Breath-taking in its blandness!
