if Putin or any other politician wants to be part in fire fighting, he or she should put on a uniform grab a shovel or a hose and fight fires, ...flying high in the air is nothing more then a photo-up to promote himself.......Medved ev and Putin have starve the fire department of men/women power and equipment and now they are blaming everyone else but themselves.
