AROUND THE WORLD

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin, who turned 67 on Mon­day, spent a mini-break in moun­tains above the Yeni­sei River in Siberia at the week­end for­ag­ing for wild mush­rooms. In a footage re­leased by Krem­lin, Putin and his de­fence min­is­ter Sergei Shoigu were shown pick­ing and sniff­ing mush­rooms. The pres­i­dent was walk­ing in an area of nat­u­ral beauty in south­ern Siberia. Sound­ing breath­less, he said: ‘We have climbed up above the clouds,’ at a height of al­most 2,000 me­tres (6,560 feet) above sea level
