He's a Man of Action
Vladimir Putin is not one of those Presidents who prefer to spend their time in the official residence. He took part in fighting a wildfire in 2010...
...and took a dive in a submarine.
Putin's also got a black belt in judo. You definitely don't want to mess with him.
Putin played in a gala hockey match between professional players and amateurs organized by the Night Hockey League in Sochi in 2014.
It turns out that Putin has a thing for music! Here he is playing the piano at China's Xi Jinping's residence...
...and at a charity concert in St. Petersburg.
US Presidents Come And Go...
...but Putin stays. Since Putin's first presidential stint, 17 years ago, US has had three Presidents: George Bush Jr., Barack Obama, and now - Donald Trump.
Some artists are so inspired by Russia's President, they write songs about him. A.M.G. rap duo's "Go hard like Vladimir Putin" went viral!
