Vladimir Putin gears up for an ICE HOCKEY match!


The country’s President, 66, put on a helmet, shoulder pads and skates and brandished a hockey stick for a friendly game in Moscow’s Red Square. Putin took practice shots and jostled for possession with Russia’s defence minister and former stars of the NHL in North America. Politicians and hockey stars mingled at an outdoor rink with a view of the Kremlin behind it, in Putin’s latest stunt for the cameras. The regular festive game comes a week before Russia celebrates Orthodox Christmas on January 7.
