Events of the Week in Cartoons by Sergei Yolkin: 7-11 October 2013

Sergei Yolkin



Dr Onishchenko is the equivalent of the US Surgeon General. Vladimir Klichko and Aleksandr Povetkin had a well-publicised match in Moscow last week, ending in victory for Klichko, although Povetkin showed much spunk and “heart”. Isaev resigned his posts with the United Russia party after it came out that his assistant Aleksandr Poglazov was kicked off an Aeroflot flight for drunken behaviour and Isayev threatened the cabin crew with dismissal and personal harm.

Valuev Said His Chair in the Gosduma’s Too Small

One of the newest Goduma deputies, Nikolai Valuev (1973- )… former heavyweight champ, now politician. Hmm… that’s the same path that the great ice hockey goalie Vladislav Tretiak (1952- ) took, too…


On Wednesday, retired Russian heavyweight boxer Nikolai Valuev, who won election as an RF Gosduma deputy from the ruling United Russia party in December, said that he asked for an adjustment to his chair. “It’s an ordinary chair, the same as for all the other deputies, the same width. Only the back is a bit higher”, Valuev told the Russia Today TV channel, adding that it was a special order. “However, today, it was still quite uncomfortable to sit in it. I asked that when they adjust the chair, they make the back lower so that it wouldn’t strain my back. I asked them to do it again, today. Maybe, they’ll readjust it”, he said after the Gosduma held its first plenary session on Wednesday. Valuev is 213 centimetres (7 ft) tall and weighs about 140 kilos (308 pounds).
