  1. I totally agree with one of interviews which was last year conducted with the President to Workers and Peasants Party. It is primitive and rediculous to see how this so callee Presidential escorts ruthless conduct themselves on the roads. They race along the roads like armed robbers endagering innocents lives. If other leaders in europe can shift themselves on bicycles or in private cars, why should these people continue behaving in such a way.
    It is prmitive behaviour and very samefull.
