Russian President and P.M had lunch together

The two most powerful people of Russia, President Dmitry Medvedev and P.M Vladimir Putin, had a meeting at the residence in Gorki, outside Moscow on October 1, 2010. They enjoyed the spot of lunch together and discussed several small issues before Medvedev visits the disputed Kuril Islands on his next business trip to Japan.While the former President Boris Yeltsin was notorious for heavy drinking during his presidential term, Putin and Medvedev are rarely seen drinking alcohol.

Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev (born 14 September 1965) is the 3rd and current President of Russia, inaugurated on May 7, 2008. He won the presidential election held on March 2, 2008 with about 70% of the vote.


The relationship between two men is rather good


Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (born 7 October 1952) served as the second President of the Russian Federation and is the current Prime Minister of Russia as well as chairman of United Russia. He became acting President on 31 December 1999, when President Boris Yeltsin resigned in a surprising move, and then Putin won the 2000 presidential election. In 2004 he was re-elected for a second term lasting until 7 May 2008.

In the party, Mr. Medvedev said that fighting alcohol abuse is an urgent priority for the country so he recently introduced a zero-tolerance law for drink-driving and a minimum legal price for vodka. Two leaders clinked glasses of milk with the traditional toast, “Na zdorovye” (literraly means “Your health”) in warm atmosphere.
