Someone’s getting shipped off to the gulag for this.
Russia’s prime minister, Vladimir Putin, visited the Paramonovo bobsleigh track outside Moscow to watch the Russian team train. Putin joined in, gliding down the racetrack with bobsleigh pilot Alexei Shadeyev, but they failed to make it to the finish line. The stop was the last in his campaign trail leading up to the presidential elections on 4 March. Putin hopes to be re-elected, having previously served two terms
Enjoy the humiliating moment.
