Russian President Vladimir Putin posed for action shots throughout his vacation earlier this week, as he fished, kayaked, snorkeled, and mushroom-picked his way through southern Siberia.
Tyva, August5:Vladimir Putin has spent more than two hours chasing a giant pike in one of the lakes in Tyva Republic during his brief Siberian vacation in the form of an intense 2-day hiking and camping trip, where the Russian president once again showcased his bare torso.
The 64-year-old is renowned for his strong-man publicity stunts, which have contributed to his sky-high popularity ratings.
A keen practitioner of martial arts and ice hockey, the president was also spotted spear-fishing, swimming and sunbathing alongside Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu.
The trip comes eight months before Russian Federation goes to the polls in the next Presidential election next March. As per the report, although he has yet to announce his candidacy, Putin is widely expected to run and to win comfortably. The temperature of water in the lakes seldom goes above 17 degrees Celsius, but "it did not hold back the president from taking a swim".
In addition to using a rod, Mr. Putin also went spearfishing, eventually catching a pike after what his spokesman, Dmitri S. Peskov, said was a two-hour hunt.
The President had to recently deny that he called the White House a "real dump" after he was quoted saying that to members and staffers at the Trump National Golf Club, according to a Sports Illustrated article. While he's gone, the White House is getting some "much-needed" renovations.
"I love the White House, one of the most lovely buildings (homes) I have ever seen".
