Never through body languafe

IT was with utmost interest that I read the editorial “Meeting with Putin’ in your newspaper. Nevertheless, I feel obliged to comment on some of the points raised by this editorial.

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that Russia does not divide countries and peoples into ordinary or extraordinary, while praising oneself as “exceptional” or “indispensable”.

The President of the Russian Federation as a true and very busy gentleman does not meet with elected leaders whose friendship he does not value. I strongly believe that it is counterproductive to read into somebody’s “body language” any non-existing meaning. It can only mislead your readers. – ILYA E. PERENKOV, Press Attache, Embassy of the Russian Federation
