Politicians told - no more kissing

Postby Angie G » 04 Nov 04, 12:23 am

Russian politicians have been told to stop kissing each other.

They've been told to stick to handshakes as the traditional Russian greeting takes too long, Moskovsky Komsomolets reports.

Officials in the Moscow regional government are also said to be annoyed at local media using pictures of them kissing to make fun of them and entertain readers.

And they have now told all their officials to use only handshakes, arguing that the 'kissing ceremony' takes so long that a ban would make time for dozens of extra meetings a year.
