During a dinner on the sidelines of the G7 summit, world leaders ridiculed Russian President Vladimir Putin. An informal conversation was published on the YouTube channel of the AFP agency. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, sitting down at the table, asked his colleagues what to do with the jacket. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replied that it was better to wait for the official joint photo, and then take off your jackets.
– But we must show that we are tougher than Putin, Johnson objected.
Trudeau remembered a photo of Putin on a horse with a naked torso taken in 2009.
– Then we should arrange a demonstration of naked torsos while riding, – he joked.
The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that horseback riding is “the best thing in the world.”
