The world has gotten its first look at Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official 2017 calendar.

The world is getting its first look at Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official 2017 calendar.

The calendar shows many sides of the Russian leader.

Some photographs show Putin doing hard things, such as sitting in a fighter airplane or climbing onto farm equipment.

Other photos seem to show his softer side. In one picture, the Russian leader is seen smiling while cuddling a cat. In another, he is holding a child while on a ski trip.

Other pictures show him standing by the sea in scuba diving equipment, riding a horse, sitting in a tree, and meeting with World War II veterans.

One photo seems like it would appear in a fashion magazine. In it, Putin is wearing dark sunglasses and the latest in men’s clothing.

The BBC’s Moscow correspondent, Steve Rosenberg, got one of the first copies of the new calendar. He made a short video of the photos, which he later posted to Twitter.

“Putin with a candle, Putin with a child, with a kitten, Putin by himself, with war veterans, and so on and so on,” Rosenberg said in the video.

Rosenberg added that the 2017 calendar ends with a look ahead to 2018. He translated a statement from Russian into English. He read the statement, which the calendar says came from Putin himself.

​“Russia is a peace-loving and self-sufficient country. We do not need other peoples’ territories. We do not need other peoples’ natural resources. But if we are threatened, we are prepared to use weapons to guarantee our security.”

  • Whatever is 180-degrees opposite to the truth, is what Washington claims…
    “Russia is aggressive – wants to take over countries – wants to take over the world”
    Note here the ultimate goals of WASHINGTON, heheh (falsely projected onto Russia)!
    :razz:

  • Why does the ‘Vladimir Putin’ in the photographs look like at least 2 or 3 different people? ‘Putin’ in the first photo doesn’t look like him at all.

  • Wow, this looks eerily similar to our presidential candidate commercials. Just because he’s holding a cat or a child doesn’t mean he’s trustworthy. For Heaven’s Sake, Hillary states “Every child deserves the chance to live up to his or her God-given potential” but at the same time supports the murder of millions of babies. (victims of sexual crime are somewhat excusable but for the most part it’s just women whoring around and then not wanting to take responsibility)
    I can’t say if he is benevolent or malevolent, I don’t personally know him. But a photoshoot is staged anyway, also why is he making a calendar of himself, what’s the motive? Sadly, positions of power tend to corrupt people that had good intentions, this makes it hard to trust any of them. Also, history is the best teacher of what rulers will do.
    One thing I can say, is at least he cares enough about his people to have built nuclear shelters :???:

  • And when was this that Putin allegedly said his regretted the fall of the Soviet Union??? Everything one reads and every question and answer session or video from Russia shows the exact opposite to be true. He always welcomes countries working together, he is for freedom and equality, loves his country, God, and people, hates war, re-opened the churches. He especially detests the Obama punks lies about him, the provocations, the criminality of the NWO bunch. So who is more trustworthy….. Sure wish he was our president.

  • I feel sorry for the kitten, which clearly looks determined to escape from his grasp. I’m not necessarily making a political point about Putin, but at least kitty isn’t in a weighted sack next to a river. If it was an American citizen in the hands of Hillary or Trump however…

    (If you can read this part it’s because this comment took so long to fall through the BIN system that I submitted it twice).
