THE HAGUE, February 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Skater Ireen Wust of the Netherlands said she was amazed by the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Russian president visited the Netherlands’ Guest House on Sunday, on February 9, to have a talk with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.
“Before the Russian president went away he came to me to embrace and congratulate on my victory. He asked me if I liked all in Sochi. I was at a loss a little. But I replied all was well and congratulated him on Olga Graf’s bronze medal,” Wust said.
“The Russian president had time to talk with RTL journalist Bart Nolles. Putin said he liked the Guest House. He wished further success to the Dutch team,” Algemeen Dagblad reports.
“During the talk with the Dutch king and queen, the Russian president asked if they liked all in Sochi. King Willem-Alexander noted the excellent organisation of the Olympic Games while Queen Maxima praised volunteers’ aid,” Volkskrant writes.
On Sunday, February 9, Wust got a gold medal in women’s 3000-metres skating race. Russia’s Olga Graf got a bronze medal.
