Eton boys stage secret Kremlin coup to thaw relations with Putin, by Greg Hurst.
Eton boys like to be different. Thus a group of them spent the bank holiday weekend in the Kremlin, on their own secret mission to thaw east-west relations with President Putin.
The value of playing host to boys from a school that produced 19 prime ministers and countless statesmen and public figures appears to have occurred to Mr Putin, who has a keen eye for public relations coups.
He received them in a grand state room where they sat at a table for an hour of talks, with photographers and a film crew in attendance.
