Putin responsible for forest fires in Russia

Yes, Putin’s power appears to be growing once again. Tonight’s evening news on ZDF has a piece on the catastrophic fires in Russia that are engulfing the forests and have also destroyed a whole village. In the story, blame is assigned to Putin, to his centralisation of control and the centre’s inability to co-ordinate the fire-fighting.

Medvedev? Apparently not relevant. The fetishisation of Putin continues in 2010.
