President of Russian federation Vladimir Putin demanded from state prosecutorís to deal with problem related to low quality gasoline on Russian stations.

Putin reminded ministers about the episode from famous Soviet comedy where the same situation was described. As a result the president ordered prosecutors to take the situation under control.

Russian Minister of Industry and Sales Denis Manturov explained that examinations that have been initiated the previous year revealed that major part of complaints regarding low fuel quality are connected directly with gas stations. As a prove of his words Manturov provided statistics where 20 of 120 had several violations regarding fuel quality.
