Well, he's at it again. A report by Turkmen TV shows the president inspecting Ashgabat's international airport. However, the explanation of the mechanics of the baggage-handling system clearly wasn't enough for Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov, who then piloted a helicopter and flew it to the capital's suburbs.
Three days later, state television then carried pictures of the Turkmen president inspecting troops, but instead of just smiling politely he was riding around in military vehicles and firing weapons.
He probably translates Ovid in his spare time and makes a souffle to die for.
