The Russian leader even brought along his Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu and other officials for the excursion.

This is not the first time Putin has showcased his macho side in carefully crafted images released by the Kremlin.

The Russian president has been seen riding horses shirtless, being pictured with a polar bear and taking part in various sporting activities.  

Putin's penchant for bare-chested photos has even earned him a "Saturday Night Live" impersonation.
