Keeping it in the family

As reported in The Moscow Times on 16 April 2012, President-elect Vladimir Putin is generously doling out positions to close relatives, with the appointment of his cousin Igor Putin as chairman of the board of Russian Land Bank [Russky Zemelny Bank]. His cousin is also a director of Master Bank and allegedly has a senior position at one of Surgutneftegaz’s many companies.

So Vladimir Putin’s declarations about rooting out corruption clearly don’t apply to his family.
