"In a helmet emblazoned with the emblem of Russia..."

Hmmm... for a commie, he sure seems awful nationalistic.

Awhile back he drove around in a Lada Kalina (Russian jeep) to make a nice show for Russian automakers. It looked good on the news, the Prime Minister tooling around Siberia in a 4x4, but apparently there are more than just bears out there - onlookers caught it on video.

From a Russian website: "Yesterday, thanks to Chita jeepers from the 'Saboteur Club' there appeared a video that clearly shows that Putin was "driving" three Kalinas: the first was driven by him and was surrounded by the cars of his bodyguards, the second came immediately after the motorcade, and the third was in the rear on top of a car transporter. All three Kalinas were exactly the same. What was interesting and different: among the premier's escort there was not a single domestic car. Putin's Kalina was surrounded by several Toyota Land Cruiser 200s. A Toyota Land Cruiser 100 was at the head of the column, and they were accompanied by a VW Transporter minibus. The cars of the Highway Patrol were all Ford Focus. This was eloquent support for our domestic producers."

It also turned out that Putin's Kalina was a custom built version with an Opel motor.

But still, you have to hand it to him - he drove an actual car outside a building, unlike out president who only managed to drive an electric car 10 feet.
