Russian President Vladimir Putin goes shirtless. Again. Twitter's got jokes

Elections or no elections, Putin, definitely, has a strange obsession of going shirtless

Russia is in news again. Earlier this week, with the temperatures as low as -62°C, thermometers stopped working in the small village of Mymyakon, now it’s Russian President Vladimir Putin who’s making headlines. It’s no news Putin likes going shirtless and showing-off his torso. But wait, this time the bravado was religious in nature. The president went shirtless and took a dip in an icy-cold Russian lake to commemorate baptism of Jesus Christ — a custom observed by Christians to mark the day of Epiphany.

 

With the Russian Presidential elections due to be held on March 18, Twitter had its views on why the 65-year-old incumbent needed to show his machismo and go bare-chested:

 

And of course, there were Trump jokes:

Apart from the recent religious demonstration, there have been several occasions when Putin hasn’t felt the need to put on shirts.

Last year in August, the President went on a vacation in southern Siberia where he went fishing and this happened:
