Russians are offered Putin’s best spots to stay by desperate Kremlin | World | New

The flight ban and bank card cancellation effects of the West’s sanctions on Russia have all but eliminated the ability of its people to go on vacation. They have also been hit hard by the withdrawal of businesses from the dictatorship, including the loss of Netflix, Starbucks, McDonald’s and many others. In a feeble effort to convince their population that the sanctions are not so bad, Kremlin officials are offering Russian vacationers a package holiday.

This exciting journey will see them visit the personal hotspots of Vladimir Putin himself. Budding travelers looking for a summer getaway will instead be offered a trip to the heart of the Siberian wilderness.

It is advertised as the same location where infamous photos of a shirtless Putin on horseback appeared in 0C temperatures. The 1,200 kilometer route through Krasnoyarsk, Khakasia and Tuva also includes some of Russian despot’s favorite holiday.

He promises to take visitors to “the places where the president likes to relax”.

However, the exact locations are currently not available. The agency is spending £18million on other tourism projects, including the “Tsar’s Road” route between St Petersburg and Moscow and “The Day Begins Here” on Sakhalin Island, Vice reported.

Russian citizens are currently barred from entering a number of European countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom.

The quality of life for Russians has also dropped due to the large number of global services and goods that withdrew from the country after Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine. Banks such as American Express, Visa and Mastercard have all limited or completely closed their services in Russia, while a large number of extremely popular food and media companies have closed their products there.

Gathered in Bavaria for a G7 summit, Western political leaders joked among themselves imitating Putin’s infamous shirtless horse riding photo as they belittled the despot.

“Jackets? Jackets removed? Shall we undress? Mr Johnson joked as he sat down at the table with his fellow leaders of the world’s biggest economies.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau replied: “Let’s wait for the picture”, to which Johnson replied: “We have to show that we are tougher than Putin”.

Mr Trudeau then added: ‘We’re going to get the shirtless riding show.

Mr Johnson can then be heard in footage saying: ‘We need to show them our pecs.’

European Union President Ursula von der Leyen then joined in the mockery, adding: “Horse riding is the best.”

The lunch was a meeting of leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union. Joe Biden was present, but did not take part in the joke.
