Here’s a silly post about Russia’s new “Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces”:http://russianforces.org/blog/2008/05/dmitri_medvedev_is_the_new_sup.shtml. There are some serious posts in the works, I promise!
The “President of the Russian Federation”:http://www.kremlin.ru website has been quite dramatically updated with information on Dmitry Medvedev in the last few days. For the Russian speakers, the “Uznai Prezidenta”:http://www.uznai-prezidenta.ru/ update is quite priceless. However, for the English speakers, I want to specifically point out Medvedev’s “Photo Album”:http://www.kremlin.ru/eng/photoalbum.shtml
and the section “About Myself”:http://www.kremlin.ru/eng/articles/article200253.shtml. The quote below is how Medvedev describes his choice of career…
“To be honest, I didn’t give much thought as a child to what I would like to do when I grew up. I liked being out and about, playing games, playing sport, but later, as I grew a bit older, there were several professions that interested me. *I wanted to go into chemistry (I really liked the chemistry experiments we did in school),* and I also wanted to become a teacher.”
