Hot for Vlad!

The Russian presidential website released photos of a bare-chested Vlad this week creating an uproar on the Russian airwaves.
AP reported:

The tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda on Wednesday published a huge color photo of the bare-chested president under the headline: “Be Like Putin.” Its excuse? A guide showing exactly what exercises were required to build up a torso like the Russian leader’s.

Kremlin watchers have been trying to guess what kind of political message the pictures send, given that the 54-year-old Putin has insisted he plans to step down at the end of his second term next year, as required by the constitution.

One radio talk show host speculated the photos were meant to enhance Putin’s personal appeal to voters — a strong signal that he doesn’t plan to relinquish power. When the commentator, Yevgeniya Albats, went on to suggest the half-naked photo shoot was unbecoming for a Russian leader, female listeners peppered her with e-mails expressing admiration for Putin’s physique.

Hmm, Let’s see…
I’m going with the “he’s going to be around a while” crowd.

Since I know you can’t get enough of hot stuff Vlad here are a few more photos from the presidential website:
