During the short stop in the taiga, Putin went underwater hunting.

Russia's defense minister, Sergei K. Shoigu, at left in the photo above, joined Mr. Putin for part of the trip.

Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said in Russian state news outlet Pravda that the president donned scuba gear and a Go Pro as he pursued a pike for two hours on the fishing expedition, with images showing Putin emerging from underwater with his catch.

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

In 2008, he shot a Siberian tiger with a tranquilliser gun, reportedly saving a TV crew from attack.

Russian President Vladimir Putin displayd his catch while he was on vacation.

Russian president Vladimir Putin engages in many outdoor activities during his two-day stay in Siberia, in the region of Tuva, and the whole thing was documented in pictures by his government.

After a week dominated by talk of sanctions, the American and Russian Presidents are now off vacationing on opposite sides of the globe.

Putin spent two hours searching for the ideal catch at the bottom of the Siberian lake.

Fortunately, Putin also remembered to take photos and video footage with a GoPro camera and a drone, including while spearfishing in a diving suit and snorkeling mask.

Back in December, Russian President Putin decided not to respond to sanctions imposed by the outgoing USA administration and act in accordance with the ties built with the new U.S. leadership.
