"Of course I do it." Putin told where he spends 2 hours every day and became a laughing stock
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been mocked by Russian fans after admitting how much time he spends on sports. At a meeting with residents of Anadyr, the Kremlin leader said that he always tries to spend about two hours on it.
"Of course, I do it every day for at least two hours, approximately... Sometimes a little more, because there is a gym, a swimming pool, all together, a shower, two and a half hours. Not necessarily two hours, but at least an hour, at least half an hour," Putin said.
The dictator also mentioned that in Russia, sports are "one of the most important social indicators of society's development."
"We even have certain indicators that we must achieve in the country: how many people in the country should be engaged in physical education and sports," the Russian leader added.
Russians in the comments could not get past the story of the freezing Moscow region.
"At a meeting with freezing citizens, the president said a lot of warm words," users mock.
Some people accuse their president of lying and also mention the topic of lookalikes.
"This one, apparently, just genetically cannot help but lie", "It's certainly convenient for him: one day Udmurt studies for two hours, the next day Banquety, and so on. We don't have anyone like that," "It probably takes him at least four hours a day to read historical works," fans write.
Many Russian sports fans were furious at such statements.
"I'm glad to hear, bishop, that you have enough free time! I am very glad that there are no problems in the country, and you have the opportunity to give yourself at least TWO hours a day to your beloved!" the network notes.
