Russian Governor Tweets Photo Of Live Worm In Kremlin Salad: Salt Mines Beckon

by | 15th, October 2010

DMITRY Zelenin, governor of Tver Oblast, Russia, told his followers on Twitter that he’d been served a live earthworm at a Kermlin dinner at a state dinner for German President Christian Wulff.

Alongside a photos, Zelenin told one and all:

“That’s an original way to show that the lettuce leaf is fresh.”

It went down predictably.

Foreign policy adviser Sergei Prikhodko slammed Mr Zelenin for “irresponsibility and stupidity“. Adding, with menace

“I would advise anyone who wants to invite Mr Zelenin as a guest to think hard before doing so.”

But as he right? Was there a worm in his salad? And who knew that Russians ate salads?!

Anatoly Galkin, the Kremlin’s head chef, says it is “nonsense“.

Although should Mr Zeletin find anything else in his official dinners, he should not be too shocked. Might be best to eat before the do. Pass the salt (mine)…
