Monday, 6 February 2018, Moscow, Russia – When you consider the stress of militarily invading other countries, suppressing the political opposition, cracking down on gay people, and dealing with an ongoing scandal of interfering with a foreign country’s democratic elections, one could say that Russian President Vladimir Putin has a pretty busy schedule. But for some reason, Putin has found time to make a surprise press release Sunday in regards to Russia’s failing fish yogurt industry. Specifically, Putin says he wants to work with the State Duma to eventually privatise or dissolve the российская государственная йогуртная корпорация (Rossiyskaya Gosudarstvennaya Yogurtnaya Korporatsiya, RGYK) (Russian State Yogurt Corporation), commonly known as YogCorp.
