VLADIMIR – On the veranda of restaurant Panorama in the Russian city of Vladimir, with a little train called ’Lastotsjka’ (Zwaluwtje) a small two-hour ride from Moscow, is the family-Smirnov together. No, they are not descendants of the maker of the famous vodkamerk that dates back to the tsarentijd. “Smirnov is a fairly common Russian name,” says the 43-jarge Alexei Smirnov. “And I am an ordinary man. Russia consists mainly of ordinary people.”

Anastasia Smirnov, here with her daughter Nika, describes himself as a silent Putin-fan.
