Mikhail sent this official message to president Aliyev:

Hey buddy, good going with the navy, now if you only weren't stuck on a big lake. Ah, but seriously, great job buddy. You know, it's been a while since we've seen each other (I mean we've never seen each other), you should really come over for a barbeque sometime.
