Is that Putin? If so, I must say he was kind of handsome back in the day. Now-a-days? Eh...confused
yeah. that's Vladimir Putin when he was 26.
he actually looked really good up until about 2003
and he's in his early 50's in these photos
He must be in his 60's now, right? He looks good in those photos, actually. I like the last one. Thanks for sharing man.
actually he just turned 60. that last photo was from the APEC summit held in China back in 2001.
Ah, I see. I assumed it was in '03. Why would he wear that to a summit, I wonder? confused I know it was in China, but it's still kind of weird.
everyone wore a similar outfit for the group photo. it was provided for everyone. i tried my best to find a photo for you but they're all very small. the only photos i found were of Putin and Bush.
APEC is a really big international summit. and with almost all political summits (G20, G8 etc.) countries trade off on hosting. a group photo is taken each time. most countries have the politicians don traditional dress for it.
