The Kremlin has published several photos of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who took a walking holiday in Siberia with his Minister of Defense and the head of the Federal Security Service (FSB)
Pictures show the 65- year old Putin in khaki outfit and hat, with binoculars and walking sticks, hiking in wooded mountains and taking a boat trip on the Yenisei in the Tuva region of southern Siberia.
"The President, on his way to Kemerovo, decided to fly earlier and spend Saturday and Sunday in Tuva, on the Yenisei River," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
"He went up in the mountains admiring the beautiful views."
Earlier snapshots of Mr. Putin on vacation, including pictures of fishing and sunbathing without a shirt, are said to show his robust physical health and strength while working with the State business wrestles.
