Putin’s Latest Stunt Was Staged

Posted on October 7, 2011


He’s known for taming tigers, riding bareback and bare chested and throwing a mean full nelson in the wrestling ring, but one of Vladimir Putin’s aides has confirmed that his latest stunt was set up.

The ABC reports that footage of a scuba diving Russian President discovering thousand year old vases at the bottom of the Black Sea was in fact, staged.

“Putin didn’t find down there jugs that had lain there for many thousands of years. It’s obvious,” the aide said.

“Of course, they were found in the course of an expedition several weeks or days earlier.”

“I think politics all over the world is stage-craft and there is just more stage-craft here than in most places, the readers here and the people to some extent, I think, must enjoy it.”
