Boris Fyodorov

Boris who?

Boris Fyodorov. Did you know him?

I didn't know him.

Deputy prime minister of Russia. Briefly. Wrote 200 articles. Director of Gazprom. Enemy of corruption. Died at age fifty.

Only fifty?

A stroke. Liked stripy lawns and old buildings.

Then he had something.

Yeah, he did a lot.


When someone dies, one of the first questions is, what caused it? And how old were they? Then their achievements. Economist, anti-corruption. This is a laudable position. Which precedes the reminiscing about foibles. The preservation of old buildings, okay, but the ecology of lawns. This man had balance.
