Ukraine and Google playing Justin Trudeau's 'sock game'

in #ukraine5 years ago

Prime Ministers Volodymyr Groysman and Justin Trudeau met in Ottawa
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is well known for his style, and his colourful - sometimes themed - socks.
When Ukraine's trade representative, Nataliya Mykolska, visited Mr Trudeau she took the opportunity to contribute to his collection of - what broadcasting platform Ukrinform has called - "unusual socks".
Ukraine's Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade tweeted a photo of her special delivery from Ukraine's PM Volodymyr Groysman, intended for Mr Trudeau as part of a promotion of trade relations between the two countries.

Commentators appeared to be split on whether it is an appropriate present for a head of government.
As photos circulated of the two leaders, a Facebook post by Ukrainian news website spurred a mixed response about Mr Trudeau's footwear.

Kate Tarbukina called the gift to Mr Trudeau an expression of "vulgar antique hell." Meanwhile, Kateryna Krotkova, who spotted a familiar brand, was happy she "has something in common with Justin now".
"Did they just give sweat socks to the prime minister? Wow, cool," said Sergiy Petrakov with some sarcasm.
