Vladimir Putin likes a joke as much as the next man – but not in the offices of state organisations.

After a spoof R’n’B video of customs officers in Vladivostok went online, the premier reprimanded the chief of the service, RIA Novosti reported.

He told Andrei Belyaninov: “Several of our departments need to be disciplined. I myself like to have fun and make jokes, but it should be done elsewhere.”
