Gazprom’s website has published a request for bids. It’s soliciting a contract for the supply of equipment to its equine stables in the village of Bogorodskoye, in the Leninsky District of the Moscow Region.

It’s obvious that a solarium is exactly what the gas monopoly needs at the moment, it’s horses certainly must be tanned and healthy. No one need dare ask the purpose for which Gazprom requires stables.

It is ordering a great deal of medical and cosmetological equipment for its Morozovka resort hotel in the Solnechnogorsky district of the Moscow Region, totalling 4.2 million rubles in value ($150,000). Included are: a Whirpool Florida 300 hot tub, an Aurora vertical solarium, an Aqua Jet Therma Spa, a Milta K laser physiotherapy device, an Orient wet massage table, an Algoderm ultrasonic skin treatment device and a Hot Cabi towel dryer. Despite the crisis, you see, Gazprom employees must care for their health, since the company reflects our national heritage.
