Spring responded to the article about the “offensive” bouquet Merkel Putin
Moscow. May 21. INTERFAX.RU — Interpretation is beautifully presented as a sign of respect for the bouquet as insults — is evidence of loss of aesthetics and beauty of human relations, said the Vice-speaker of the state Duma Irina Spring, commenting on the publication of the German newspaper Bild about the colors, presented by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin arrived in Sochi, German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“Giving a woman flowers is a wonderful tradition and a woman’s prerogative, which cannot be anything else, even if a woman politician or a statesman… So you can agree to that treatment, “Ms.” or “Mrs.” is an insult — wrote Spring “Vkontakte”.
On Friday, may 18, Vladimir Putin, who met Merkel in the residence “Bocharov stream”, gave the German Chancellor a bouquet of flowers. The German newspaper Bild found the gesture signal, noting that what looks like a common courtesy, really is an insult.
What a scene. Putin greets Merkel with flowers. She greets him in German (he speaks it). Medvedev Merkel says hi and starts speaking some Russian with him. pic.twitter.com/KQFeY00dfJ
