In Ecuador you can whistle when you want. I do not know why, but earlier Russian girls did not travel abroad. Now they are everywhere. You know, there are a lot of Russian girls. Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend is Russian. My wife is Russian. Jean Narde is married to a Russian. In general, the most beautiful girls in the world are Russian. My happiest day in Russia is my son’s birthday.”
