Cheers, Roman!

Vladimir Putin helpfully suggests / requests / instructs / threatens Roman Abramovich with the task of funding Russia’s multi-billion dollar World Cup infrastructure, half of which no doubt will be lost to corruption.  From the Guardian:

Putin said after Russia’s win that Abramovich could ease government spending on construction for the World Cup by investing privately. “I don’t rule out that Mr Abramovich may take part in one of these projects,” Putin said in televised comments. “Let him open his wallet a little. It’s no big deal – he won’t feel the pinch. He has plenty of money.”
