Putin opens Moscow Fashion Week with a mystery photo

It’s fashion week in Moscow, so I thought it fitting that we open it with this photograph of Dear Leader Vladimir Putin. Unlike prior photographs of DLVP, which show him mastering nature with his bare chest, this one is, um, well, see below. It’s also unclear when or where it was taken, so if you know the answer, please advise.

  1. Julia — I just sent a link around my office about the same earlier this week. Please see the link from CNN: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2010/03/22/gps.russia.putin.cnn

    Fareed Zakaria caught wind of Putin’s fashion-inspiring outing, supposedly in Khakassia, Monday of this week.

    Hope that’s helpful.

    Yes! Turns out DLVP went riding back in February, but I would argue that a picture like this is timeless.
