Now Putin’s just piling on in the Case of the Pocketed Super Bowl Bauble.
Russian president Vladimir Putin says that, while he doesn’t “remember either Mr. Kraft or the ring,” he is willing to have a new one fashioned for Kraft.
“If it is such a big treasure for Mr. Kraft and the team . . . I have a suggestion," Putin said at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. "I will ask a jewelry firm to make a really good and big thing, so everyone will see it is a luxury piece, made of quality metal and with a stone, so this piece will be passed from generation to generation in the team whose interests are represented by Mr. Kraft.
"This would be the smartest solution partners can ever achieve while tackling such a complicated international problem," he said.
We’ll await Kraft’s response on that. Currently, he’s got a complicated local problem with “the team whose interests are represented” by Mr. Kraft.
