Vladim Putin is running for parliament in Latvia. Medvedev and Lavrov are also up for seats in government. The world’s gone crazy, right?
RT: Vladim Putin is a Latvian of Russian descent, who bears the same surname as Russia’s prime minister, and he says this gives him just enough motivation to go into politics.
Turns out, its all part of a cute stunt by a pro-Russian Latvian political party to gain attention. What could possibly go wrong?
