At the G7 conference, world leaders publicly made fun of Russian President Vladimir Putin for his peculiar predilection for posing for photos while only partially clothed.
You are familiar with the photographs that we are talking about. Those pictures in which Vladimir Putin is never seen wearing a shirt for whatever reason.
However, this detour in the conversation didn't last for very long.
Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, was the one who brought attention to the most obvious problem, which was the unpredictability of the Russian leader.
In spite of Putin's latest threats to attack the West and the invasion of Ukraine, the primary topic of conversation has been his choice of dress.

Johnson and Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, engaged in some back-and-forth on the extremely intense (and very much absent) Russian leader throughout their conversation.
"Put on your coats! Take off your coats? Shall we undress and get into the sauna? "According to Reuters, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom requested this in jest.
After that, Johnson brought up some of Putin's most famous topless images.
He remarked that all of us need to demonstrate that we are more resolute than Putin.
The leader of Canada, Justin Trudeau, made a joking remark about the party going on a horse ride.
He stated, "We are going to get the bare-chested horseback riding demonstration," and I quote: "We are going to get it."
After that, the Prime Minister of the UK made a witty remark, saying, "We've got to show them our pecs."
In the off chance that you have somehow managed to avoid seeing these images of Putin, you should know that the Russian leader enjoys circulating naked photographs of himself engaging in various pleasurable pastimes.
Like karate. Or going fishing. Or wrestling with the arms. Or in 2018, when he went so far as to sunbathe in the snow while at a lake in Siberia.

In response to a question from a journalist working for ABC on the peculiar photographs, Vladimir Putin stated, "When I am on vacation, I see no need to hide behind the bushes, and there is nothing wrong with it."
Okay, that settles it. It would appear that we will be required to repress that thought completely and push it to the back of our minds.
After being expelled from the club of global leaders in 2014 due to his involvement in the invasion of Crimea, Vladimir Putin was not present at the G7 conference.
Reuters reports After Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February, the heads of state of the G7 countries will meet to discuss future measures against Russia.
According to a study by the legal firm Ashurst, sanctions against Putin, his cronies, and his nation are now being imposed by the United States of America, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia in response to the Russian invasion.
