Putin plans 2092km road trip

Moscow, Aug. 27: Vladimir Putin has carefully crafted the image of a man of action over the past few years, being pictured bare-chested in various hunting shooting and fishing poses.

His latest endeavour is a slight departure from his usual macho pursuits. The Russian Prime Minister is undertaking a 2,092-km road trip across Russia’s east in a Lada.

His journey is designed to showcase the completion of the country’s first ever continuous east to west road. The trip is being chronicled by state media and comes after a blizzard of publicity for Putin who has been filmed shooting whales with a crossbow and piloting an amphibious fire fighting plane.
