Alexander Avdeyev

is totally my hero right now.  Of course, he will probably fall flat on his face, but at least he is taking a stand  on Gazprom Tower (I am still confused as to the real name… hang on… here it is: Okhta Centre).  Again, think of Smolnyy, people of Petersburg!  And your status as a World Heritage Site!

One problem, AP, Alexander Avdeyev is not all that powerful.  He has had an impressive career, but he may be taking on too much with both Gazprom, and Valentina Matvienko.  This could turn out to be the end of his career, or at least the beginning of a clan war.

continues its quest for world domination.  Great job, guys!  But I still want your adverts online.  Also, I am voting no on the “Corn Palace” (it seriously does look like a corn cob).  Think of Smolnyy!

A couple more thoughts on Gazprom from FT.com, and from Alexei Miller.
