Eat Less For Putin, Russians Told

Moscow - Eat less, use beetroot instead of lipstick, swap French lingerie for Russian-made cotton panties and remember that hardships are a test from God.

These and other tips are being offered to Russians by lawmakers, top policy makers and the Russian Orthodox Church as the gravity of the economic crisis sinks in and prices soar.

The country pulled through great hardships before, officials say, and people should tighten their belts for their leader Vladimir Putin and a great Russia amid the confrontation with the West over Ukraine.

"I lived both under Gorbachev and Yeltsin but Putin is the first president for whom I am being asked to eat less," one Russian, Andrey Kozenko, said on Twitter.

His quip would be funny if it were not sad.

Government members openly admit they lack a plan to tackle the crisis brought on by falling oil prices and Western sanctions and warn it may last for years.

From affluent Moscow to the far-flung regions, Russians are feeling the pain: with some foregoing foreign travel while others pinch pennies to buy food.

Last week lawmaker Ilya Gaffner was monitoring price hikes at a grocery store in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg when an elderly woman told him she could no longer afford sugar for her disabled son.

His advice to her? Eat less.

"If there is not enough money you have to remember that we are Russians, we survived hunger and cold, we have to think about our health and eat less," said the deputy in the Sverdlovsk region legislative chamber, who sports a double chin.

His remarks caused outrage -- and a barrage of unprintable online comments -- forcing a senior ruling party lawmaker to recommend that Gaffner think twice before speaking next time.

- 'Eat less for Putin' -

The deputy had no sooner apologised for his faux pas than a top Putin ally told the world Russians indeed were ready for sacrifices, especially when their leader was under pressure.

"We will withstand all hardships in this country, eat less food, use less electricity," First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov told Davos elites at the World Economic Forum.

"If a Russian feels external pressure, he will never give his leader up," said Shuvalov, who is believed to be one of the wealthiest government officials.

Patriarch Kirill also called for modesty as he addressed millions on January 7 when Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas.

"During crisis we overcome evil," the powerful head of the Russian Orthodox Church said in televised remarks. He added that those who are thinking of starting a family should not put their plans on hold due to the crisis because Russians were never rich.

"This prosperity brought on by the froth of petrodollars, it really came just recently."

A senator from the parliament's upper house also chimed in, suggesting that women can use natural colours from vegetables to paint their faces like their foremothers did in ancient times.

"If they must use makeup on their lips -- no problem there is beet, it's natural and chemicals would not enter the body," Igor Chernyshev, deputy head of the social policies committee, said in December.

"And our women look better in lingerie made at a Moscow factory than that made in France."

yep let the normal people suffer while these "important" Russians (read: rich) continue spending money from the poor to live a luxury life.

Throw in some religious b.s too as many are god fearing people with no brains at all

Exactly; wonder how much of his estimated £40 billion fortune Putin will give to help the economy.

Re: Eat Less For Putin, Russians Told

While Russia spends billions on military, his people suffer. And they suffer not only from the militaries spending, but from the idea of a dominant military, which causes friction around the world. And that friction is felt most by ordinary Russians.

The Russian Economy is on the verge of collapse.. Instead of like Obama taking economists advice which stopped and reversed a massive US recession, Putin is going the North Korea route and telling his people to eat bark.

They could do many things economically right now, but are just bending over like a fresh inmate.

Or maybe if they stop invading other countries, it might help out..
