Very fresh electricity.

People can be divided into two groups: those that use electricity (and let’s face it, that’s the vast majority of us), and those that produce electricity (a very small, select group). And that’s why I’d like to congratulate everyone on Energy Day – 22 December. I’m here on the banks of the Yenisei in the village of Cheryomushki at the Sayano–Shushenskaya hydroelectric plant.

A Few Clowns Short of a Circus.

Hi all!

Last Friday, (December 14) we had our traditional New Year’s bash, not all that far from KL HQ – somewhere in among the side streets of northern Moscow, at the huge club Stadium-Live. About 1500 KL employees and guests from all corners of the globe turned up, and a further 50 or so KLers were up on stage taking part in the theatrical-rock-acrobatic-sing-song-mega-show (for which they practiced their tricks and dances and songs almost nightly for two months), accompanied by around 30 professional circus artists.
