Putin In A Submarine: Russian President Explores Shipwreck
- 07/16/2013 02:15 PM EDT World
In case you hadn't heard, Russian President Vladimir Putin is a manly man. Lest anyone forget, he likes to periodically demonstrate with random stunts and acts of bravery. Like this one: On Monday, Putin piloted a submersible 50 meters underwater to check out a sunken 19th century ship.
The half-hour trip down into the Sea of Finland took the President, now in his third term, to the remains of the Navy frigate Oleg, which sunk in 1869. No reports of any recovered treasure.
