Given the Bears probing our responses again and that feckin' great bomb they're testing, my hoop is starting to going a bit: Scary man sacks the lot? Putin accepts cabinet resignation Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov and his entire government, the Kremlin has said. Mr Fradkov offered to resign, citing "approaching significant political events", said Tass news agency. He said he wanted to give President Putin "full freedom of decision including staff decisions", Tass said. Analysts say Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov could now become PM, six months before a presidential election. My bold. Anyone in BFG seen the 3rd Shock Army mooching about lately?
