Tretyak sucks up to Putin and is ridiculed in Russia
The President of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, Vladislav Tretyak, has become a laughingstock online after making a slavish statement about Vladimir Putin. Speaking at the We Are Together. Sport forum, he said that the first thing to do was to follow Putin's instructions.
"Our most important task is to fulfil the instructions of the country's president so that as many people as possible can go in for sports in Russia. The entire forum is dedicated to our import substitution and athletes' training programmes," R-Sport quoted Tretyak.
Such humiliation of the famous ex-USSR hockey player in front of the Russian dictator received a response from Russian fans.
"The main task is to fulfil Putin's instructions" - thank you, Vladislav, there is no need to continue", "No one will play sports in Russia without Putin's instructions? What a sycophant!", "Vladik is trying to show that he is systematic and licks as much as he can," the comments read.
Users are already sick of the constant mention of their president.
"Is anything done here without Putin's orders?", "Putin is everywhere. Isn't anything happening at all without him?" - Russians ask rhetorically.
