While strange things may be afoot in Russia, nothing can stop a now-annual tradition: the Vladimir Putin calendar.
The 2017 edition of the Russian president’s calendar has hit kiosks across Moscow. And it doesn’t disappoint if you’re looking for “candid” shots of Putin.
The BBC’s Steve Rosenberg shared a video of himself leafing through the calendar, which reveals Putin lounging in a tree, Putin in flight gear, and, of course, Putin on horseback.
Oh, and did I mention Putin and a kitten?
