Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, (Russian): «Opa! Ha-ha! Wow! And you, Sergei Kuzhugetovich [Shoigu], throw it in there, where there is no fish! Ha-ha! Wow! What is this?» Sergei Shoigu, Russia's Defence Minister, (Russian): «It is a perch, that big!» Putin (Russian): «Come here! What an agile guy!» Sergei Shoigu, Russia's Defence Minister, (Russian): «What a serious passenger!» Putin... Еще (Russian): «Twice! The first shot did not get it.» Shoigu (Russian): «A serious passenger!» Russian President Vladimir Putin could be seen living up to his reputation as a true man of the Russian outdoors this week, as he enjoyed a brief fishing trip with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu in Tuva Republic. Catching up on a little R'n'R on his way to Blagoveshchensk in early August, Putin stripped down in the summer heat to get some real angling done, partaking in a variety of outdoor activities in the southern Russian province.
