Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Bono met in Medvedev’s Black Sea resort on Tuesday to discuss music (Medvedev is a huge rock n’ roll fan) and charity.

"You are doing important things, because taking care of people is not only a job for politicians," said Medvedev

The duo also discussed problems in Africa, specifically the desperate measures being taken to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and bring the population out of destitute, wide-spread poverty.

Bono wasn’t shy to suggest things to the President, and told Medvedev that spending 40 cents per day could eliminate the transfer of HIV from mother to child by 2015.

Medvedev obviously has a lot of respect for the singer. "The charity work that you and your colleagues do has brought you respect all over the world," said the President.

U2 will be playing a concert in Russia as a part of their “360” world tour.

    bla bla bla, bono is such a douche. And, 40 cents per day from the russian pres would only generate less a grand by 2015, i doubt if that would do it. Especially in the armpit of the world we call africa where people think fucking little virgin girls cures aides, or a special cream by an african president cures it. Better idea, save your 40 cent's and let that horrible continent just die.

    Really, who is Bono. A guy from Ireland who was smart enough to answer an ad from a drummer. Now all of a sudden, he is the male equivalent of Mother Theresa? Where is the world heading. And Medveded is just a puppet on a string for Putin, who will (and this may come as a surprise to all morons out there) be elected Pres in Russia again the next time. So two idiots having a coffee! Slow newsday.

    Hopefully their discussion involved telling that Commie piece of shit to keep Russian planes from entering Canadian airspace, thats twice in the last month we had to escort those scumbags out of our country. I say we blow up Russia (all except their woment), the entire middle east, and for an encore take down China and North Korea, let the free world reign!!!!!!!

    Sounds like a great idea to me. Bono/U2 sucks!

    I'm convinced Bono is nothing but a shill for Big Pharma. HIV is not transmitted to babies from their moms… Thats an urban legend to sell more meds. Yes, its true that a baby will be born with their mom's antibodies (thus test HIV+ initially), but they will discard them within a few year and test neg at that point…

    HIV can not permeate the barrier of the placenta any more than it can break thru a condom.
