The Kremlin disseminates photos of Vladimir Putin bare-chested during her vacation

While snorkeling is probably not high on the list of most tourists who plan a visit to Russia, Mr. Putin demonstrated that the country's lakes, whose waters can be quite chilly even during the summer, do provide that option for the adventurous.

Pictures and video footage released by the Kremlin on Saturday showed Putin spear-fishing, swimming and sunbathing alongside Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu.

Mr. Putin "has been caught in a waterfall near a mountain lake, is devoted to the underwater fishing, is tanned, has done white water rafting in the mountain rivers, in the rapids, has piloted canoes and motor boats, did some hiking and quad biking in the mountains", has enumerated the spokesperson for the Kremlin, Dmitri Peskov.

Putin has frequently engaged in action stunts since taking the helm in 2000, flying combat jets, riding horses and fishing bare-chested.

In other televised escapades underlining his love for nature, Putin accompanied a flock of cranes on a motorized hang glider, shot a tiger with a tranquilizer gun, tracked polar bears and released leopards into a wildlife sanctuary.
