Putin responds to G7 leaders’ jokes about bare chests

Russian President Vladimir Putin did not find jokes made about him by G7 participants funny.

The background was topless pictures of him riding.

Recent quips at the G7 summit over the shirtless photos of Vladimir Putin did not go down well with the Kremlin chief. If the G7 leaders had exposed themselves, it would have been a “disgusting sight,” the Russian President told journalists in the Turkmen capital Ashgabat on Wednesday.

The conversation Putin touched on happened at the G7 summit at Schloss Elmau in Bavaria on Sunday afternoon. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked whether jackets should be taken off or not in view of the high temperatures, adding: “We all have to show that we are tougher than Putin.” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replied, among other things: Riding shirtless, you have to do that. He alluded to a well-known photo of Putin in such a pose.

“Take off above or below the waistline?”

“I don’t know how they wanted to undress, above or below the waistline. I think it would have been a disgusting sight in any case,” Putin was quoted as saying by the Russian news agency Tass.

For the harmony between body and soul you have to do sports, not drink too much alcohol and give up other bad habits, Putin instructed the heads of state and government of the leading democratic industrialized countries. Until the Russian annexation of the Crimean Peninsula, which belongs to Ukraine, in 2014, Russia was a participant in the expanded G8 summits.
