LOOK: Duterte praises Russian envoy Igor Khovaev: Idol kita!


President Vladimir Putin isn’t apparently the only Russian that President Rodrigo Duterte holds in high regard.

In a speech at the closing plenary of the 26th Mindanao Business Conference in Cagayan de Oro City Saturday (September 9), Duterte heaped praises on Russian Ambassador to the Philippines Igor Khovaev.

“Mr. Ambassador, Igor Khovaev, is my good friend. We meet everywhere. He’s my idol, actually,” he said.

“We met in — it was a short time, but I was in the — in his country. Eh naudlot lang po dito sa developments ng ating bayan,” Duterte added.

The President flew to Russia for a five-day official visit last May but had to cut his trip short because of the fighting that erupted in Marawi City.
