Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s Latest Publicity Stunt

Is playing hockey.

Russian PM Vladimir Putin slipped on his skates to train with some teenage members of a Russian ice hockey team. In the 40-minute session, Putin found the net several times, and set up a few goals for others. He’s only been learning to skate for the last 2 months after promising the Russian national team earlier this year that he would improve his skills. Putin confessed he did try skating when he was a boy, but compared himself to a cow on ice, whose “hooves” would end up doing the splits.
