Moscow- The beautiful Stalinist architecture of the Russian capital, long admired by British council architects, has seen many a scandal come and go but the latest one seems set to rumble for a while to come.
Russia's best selling daily and former KGB mouth piece, Pravda, has been ruffling a few sensitive feathers inside the medieval walls of the still secretive Kremlin.
It all started six weeks ago when a new column appeared in the usually staid state organ declaring "Putin sucks dog cock!" the shocking article then went on to describe in salacious detail the presidents secret night time trips to moscow parks in his rabid quest for hot dog meat.
The appearance of the article sent shockwaves through the Vodka stained capital, and has had all Moscow slurring who is Yuri Baghovshite?
Pravda are keeping the true identity of their new columnist secret due to the unusually high attrition rates suffered by crusading journalists on the streets of the turnip loving capital.
Muscovites have lovingly nicknamed their new hero "Da Bushski" which translates as the Devil or man without morals in the highly complex Russian languague.
Baghovshite's latest expose of the kleptocratic parasites infesting the Kremlin has seen heavily armed teams from the Government's anti journalism squad breaking arms and searching for files in the main Pravda offices.
Moscow's Bookmakers are now taking bets on how long it will be until Pravda's newest sensation has his first and last taste of a Pollonium sandwich.
But until that day comes Mr Bagovshite seems set to carry on his courageous one man crusade against authoritarianism and Mr Putin's filthy love of canine lipstick.
