Russian journalist is sure that he was not given a Turkmen visa for an alabay tweet

Komsomolskaya Pravda correspondent Dmitry Smirnov , a member of the Kremlin pool, complained in his Twitter account that he could not get a visa to Turkmenistan. According to the journalist, who was supposed to go to the summit of the CIS presidents in Ashgabat, he was refused a Turkmen visa because of a tweet two years ago in which he impartially spoke about President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov .

The message, which Smirnov is talking about, was published during the visit of the President of Turkmenistan to Russia, when Berdymukhamedov presented the head of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin with an Alabay puppy.

The journalist compared the way Putin and Berdimuhamedov keep the puppy, suspecting the latter of animal cruelty.

Berdimuhamedov took Alabai by the scruff of his neck and lifted him high above his head, demonstrating to the reporters present. Putin grabbed the dog with both hands and pressed it to him.
