The Foreign Minister of Austria has explained bow to Putin at own wedding


The Foreign Minister of Austria Karin Knaysl has for the first time commented on appearance of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at the wedding which was held on August 18. On air of Ö1 Morgenjournal radio station she has said that the decision to invite the Russian leader was spontaneous, and has commented on action details which have drawn attention to media. Interpretation of air is given by the Oberösterreichische Nachrichten edition. According to the head of the Austrian Foreign Ministry, at the beginning of June she has called on a wedding of colleagues from the government and also the president of Austria — "because so it is necessary". The decision to invite Putin was "absolutely spontaneous". It has come to her mind on June 5 when the President of Russia was on a visit in Vienna. According to her, she wanted to present to Putin the groom. When on July 19 she was told that Putin agrees to visit a wedding, she has become puzzled as she "absolutely didn't expect it". Knaysl has also answered criticism because she has allegedly bowed to the Russian leader in conclusion of dance. "If you saw this dance, then it was obvious to you that at the end I have made книксен" — the Foreign Minister has explained. She has noted that Putin has bowed to her, and she has made книксен to him in reply, however commentators have regarded him "as the act of submission". "Those who know me, know also that I submit to nobody" — Knaysl has concluded. Putin's visit on a wedding of Knaysl and the businessman Wolfgang Meilinger had private character. The Russian president has presented newly married a performance of the Kuban Cossack choir. He has cost to the budget 1,8 million rubles. The bride planned to lead in day of the wedding with the Russian leader a working discussion. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
