Russian President doesn’t miss the opportunity to ride a horse. So during his working trip to the Republic of Khakassia, the President decided not to change the habit.
This is Vladimir Putin riding a horse in the southern Siberia.
If there is an opportunity to ride a horse, then why not to hunt? On this photo the Russian President is in the southern Siberia after the horse riding.
Putin loves animals. Even sometimes feeds them. The Russian President is feeding an young calf in the national park “Elk Island”.
And here the head of the country stopped the boat to admire a bear.
Here’s another bear. Either the president loves these animals, or bears love him…
South Siberia, Tuva river. After horse-riding and hunting it is a good time to swim.
Everyone can swim in Tuva. But diving with an archaeological expedition on the Taman Peninsula it is more serious.
Tuva, perhaps, can be called one of the favorite places of rest of the Russian president.
The nature here is really fantastic: water, and forests, and mountains…
In Tuva fishing is also excellent. You can go fishing alone …
Or with subordinates… In Tuva Putin is usually accompanied by the Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu, the head of Khakassia Viktor Zimin, and also the head of Tuva Sholban Kara-ooly.
A perch, a pike, or a red rim … It’s enough for a good soup!
When fishing gets boring, the president heads for the underwater hunting.
Of course, equipment is available for every occasion of life. Everything with him: a wetsuit, the necessary gear, and a raft …
Once plunged under the water, he should float with a trophy in any way!
But when it is cold to swim, then again you can hunt. Here Vladimir Vladimirovich performs scientific mission – shoots a whale in China to take a part of its skin for particle analysis. This was in the Gulf of Olga.
And here is the president of Russia in eastern Siberia with blacksmiths.
Here Vladimir Putin tries to bend a frying pan with hands.
Here he decided to do arm wrestling. This picture was taken on the Lake Seliger.
And now we’ll pass to more serious entertainment. When the Russian president has the opportunity to relax at a ski resort, he rides a snowmobile. This picture was taken at the ski resort “Krasnaya Polyana”.
Putin likes speed. Here he didn’t miss the chance to ride in a racing car of Formula 1.
And one more photo of the president. Here he leads a column of bikers.
And this is a more serious “machine”. Vladimir Putin flies on a fire aircraft and even throws off water. This picture was taken in the Ryazan region during a forest fire.
Vladimir Vladimirovich decided to take a closer look on the Tank T90 during the exhibition.
He is interested in sport not less than in technique. The President has a black belt in judo.
He loves hockey less than his neighbor – President Alexander Lukashenko, but doesn’t refuse to play.
Here’s Putin – a musician. On this photo the President is playing the piano during a charity concert in St. Petersburg.
