Russia on Monday released a 47-minute video of President Vladimir Putin on vacation in Siberia.

Putin spent two days in the Tuva region of Siberia over the weekend with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, and the video captures part of their gallivanting in the woods.

The video shows Putin walking through the woods, driving a boat, fishing, snorkeling, and more.

And while most of it is rather slow, there are definitely some funny moments.

Here are the 5 best parts.


At one point, he picks up a giant log for no apparent reason and poses with it as if he were Bamm-Bamm Rubble from the Flintstones.

Later, he puts on a wet suit and goes spearfishing. After he spears a lunker, the camera follows him underwater for about 2 minutes as he swims back to the boat with his prize.

He then throws the trophy fish on the boat and hangs off the side. At one point, he appears to lose his grip and struggles to hold on as the fish flops around on the deck of the boat.

The video eventually cuts to a shirtless Putin casting a reel from the boat. For about 5 minutes, the camera watches him reel his line as his pectoral muscles bounce back and forth with each rotation. “Here, fishy, fishy!” he says at one point.

“Take a picture of me, not the mountains,” Putin then tells the cameraman after reeling in another one.

The last 20 minutes of the video are mostly picturesque drone footage of the woods and mountains.
