All Hail Czar Vlad the Lesser!

"The honor guard and flag bearers wore uniforms with tall military caps, of a style dating from Russia’s war with Napoleon in 1812. The ceremony itself unfolded in a Kremlin hall used to crown three czars — Alexander II, Alexander III and Nicholas II — as well as previous presidential inaugurations. And later, Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, gave Mr. Putin an 18th century icon while blessing him for his new term." NY Times

What? No Cossacks trampling serfs underfoot to honor the leader of the Hermit Kingdom? Too bad President* Klownstick von Drumpf couldn't be there for the ritual pissing down his back.
