Vladimir Putin responds to the leaders of the G7 countries who, on the occasion of the summit just concluded at Elmau Castle, in Bavaria, indulged in a few jokes about the naked torso that the Russian President famously loves to show off during fishing or hunting trips. The nine (in addition to the leaders of the seven countries also the President of the EU Commission and the President of the EU Council) would offer a “disgusting spectacle” if they undressed, Putin said from Ashgabat, where he went for the summit of the Caspian countries that was held around a huge rectangular table with the 5 leaders of the coastal countries strictly in suits, further lowering the level of the debate. Unlike him, the heads of state and government of the seven most advanced economies do not engage in sports, exercise, abuse alcohol and have bad habits, he added. “I don’t know how they want to undress, whether below or above the belt. But I think either way it would be a disgusting sight.” The recess at Elmau was, it could not have been otherwise, British Premier Boris Johnson. Saying that everyone could take off their clothes to “show that we are stronger than Putin”. The ball had been picked up, effortlessly, by Canadian Premier Justin Trudeau, according to whom the leaders could have tried to emulate Putin’s images, with the image of a bare-chested ride. “Oh, yes. A ride is best,” added von der Leyen. “We have to show them our bibs”, the conclusion of Boris Johnson, who does not seem to be in peak physical shape and appreciates alcohol, at least judging by the subject lines of the emails he sent to the guests of his Downing street party.
