Enthusiastic Russian Greeting!

(hat tip to WoFat for the photo)
President Dmitriy Anatolyevich Medvedev gives a warm welcome to his American counterpart, who arrived in Russia - (with an apology on his lips?). Since President Obama has apologized to everyone else for everything else, his mia culpa tour now takes place in Moscow.

Ethnic Russians take a dim view of "people of color" and that may have shaded the warmth of the greeting above.

Maybe Medvedev ain't such a bad guy after all.

Great picture! Maybe they are miffed because they told him he was spending too much money and he won't listen.

What? No Obama-mania? No crying or fainting for our rockstar president?

It looks as if the Russian President simply wants to wash his hands.

To say that greeting is less than enthusiastic is an understatement!
