Many world leaders have managed to retain control even after their term in office is over. None however have been as brazen a serpent as Vlad "The Impaler" Putin. Russia's Tsar Vlad has actually installed a marionette in his throne.The puppet is called Dmitri A.
Medvedev and Putin's ventriloquist skills are astounding. The Russian strongman who mastered judo, the KGB and the post Soviet pandemonium now demonstrates great voice throwing abilities.
In a recent performance, Putin actually had reporters looking at the puppet and asking it their questions. Medvedev even argues with Putin while he drinks a glass of vodka. Most puppeteers have been able to drink while getting their dummy to speak but Vlad the Voice Thrower is the first to have the dummy do the drinking.
Medvedev's friends from before he became a dummy claim that he never drank this much vodka in the old days.
