The Moscow elite has recently celebrated three years of the Bohemian "Mon Cafe" - the favorite cafe of respectable oligarchs and progressive youth. The cafe has been renamed to "Prado Cafe." Russian tennis star Marat Safin, the winner of the prestigious Australian Open 2005 tournament, visited the party too. The tennis player arrived only with a bodyguard; Safin's girlfriend, Daria Zhukova (22 years old), was not accompanying him.
Marat did not wish to have dinner in the cafe, he only asked a waiter to bring him a bottle of lemonade. Three girls sat at Marat Safin's table afterwards, and the athlete ordered some beer. The show started when Safin became really drunk. Marat took his cell phone out of a pocket and started showing photographs that he had uploaded on the phone. He started with pictures of his girlfriend, Daria, and finished with hardcore images: there were several XXX video clips downloaded on Safin's cell.
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
