Reuters reported that Russian President Mr Vladimir Putin has questioned the use of wind power, saying wind turbines were harmful to birds and worms. Mr Putin said at a conference in Yekaterinburg that "Wind powered generation is good, but are birds being taken into account in this case? How many birds are dying? Wind turbines shake, causing worms to come out of the soil. This is not a joke.”

Mr Putin added that people would not like to live on a planet dotted with rows of wind-powered generators and covered by several layers of solar panels.

Russia, a world-leading producer of fossil fuel, is lagging other countries in its development of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind-powered energy. Wind power is rarely used in the country to generate electricity.
