Vladimir Putin Goes Shirtless Again For New 2016 Calendar

Russian President also shows off sensitive side in shots.

Vladimir Putin appears shirtless yet again in a bizarre new calendar that's titled "All Year With The President Of Russia."

The Russian President fishes bare-chested in one of the snaps from the 2016 edition. Other images from the calendar posted online feature him working out, looking serious in military uniform and signing autographs for children.

But the political strongman also shows his sensitive side. There are photographs of him sniffing a flower and cuddling up to a dog.

"Dogs and I have very warm feelings for one another," he's quoted as saying in the caption.

Other words of wisdom include the menacing-sounding, "no one will ever get military superiority over Russia" and the thankful, "I like all Russian women. I think Russian women are the most talented and the most beautiful."

Putin recently praised prospective Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying he was "very talented, no doubt about that."

Perhaps he sent him a copy?
