Putin Donates Salary to Jewish Museum
President Vladimir Putin promised on Tuesday to contribute one month's salary to the construction of a Jewish museum of tolerance. "That's a good idea and, as the first step, I will contribute one monthly salary to the museum's construction fund," Putin told the Russia's Chief Rabbi. The Kremlin could not immediately say how much Putin earned but it is estimated as 70,000 roubles ($2,700). "There are people today who want to re-write history," he said. "The museum will help to show what it was in reality." Viva Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich!
