Earlier this week, Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was given a Bengal albino tiger cub as a present...man this story seems familiar. Apparently Yulia wants to take it to negotiations with her when it grows up. If so, this could be the first step towards the now annual Ukrainian-Russian gas price renegotiations that we will actually be excited to watch. I wonder which of his many gifted animals Putin would take....apparently he has been given enough to open up several zoos.
However, we know Putin is good at taking down wild cats so I guess this is not the solution to bilateral relations after all.
