Putin's Outdoor Adventure Vacation (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has been photographed engaging in an array of outdoor adventure activities in Southern Siberia, sometimes only partially clothed. The Telegraph suggests that perhaps this was more than a simple vacation, but a planned photo shoot aimed at convincing Russians that their former president is as manly as ever.

Mr Putin's day of activities were described as a "holiday" by state media but was clearly aimed at reinforcing his tough-guy image that plays so well at home.

Check out this slideshow of Putin's outdoor adventures and vote on which photo is your favorite.
