The President of the Russian Federation was sitting at a distance of several meters from him during the meeting with the leader of Iran.
The Russian dictator is afraid to approach others people, so some meetings with international politicians, who rarely meet with Putin since the beginning of a full-scale war in Ukraine, become an occasion for a meme.
This time, social networks exploded with a wave of jokes after the Russian president's train to Iran, where he met with the country's top leader Ali Khamenei, local president Ibrahim Raisi, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
During a meeting with Ali Khamenei, Putin sat at a great distance from him, which recalled the famous meeting of the Russian dictator and French President Emanuel Macron in the Kremlin at a 15-meter table.
“There are rumors that the table refused to be in this picture,” the Kyiv Post joked .
“Apparently, the 15-meter table did not fit on the plane,” Kharkiv_Rulit wrote in the public.
“”Macho” Putin came to Iran to ask for drones” — signed on Twitter photo of Putin hunched over on the couch.
The main topic for memes was not only the distance at which Putin communicated with Khamenei, but also the very fact of the visit of the Russian leader to Iran.
Putin's visit to Iran took place within the framework of the Astana format of negotiations, the purpose of which is to resolve the situation in Syria. It is known that Russia and Iran support the central government headed by authoritarian President Bashar al-Assad, while Turkey supports the armed opposition in the north of the country. Another important topic of the talks was the war in Ukraine.
Interestingly, during the meeting in Tehran, the Turkish President made Putin wait for him. It is believed that this is an open sign of disrespect on the part of Recep Erdogan, or revenge on the Russian dictator, who likes to be late for official events.
It is known that politicians close to the Russian dictator are also forced to take feces for analysis several times a week . And Putin himself on trips abroad is accompanied by employees of the Federal Security Service, who collect the excrement of the presidents of the Russian Federation and put them in a special suitcase to be taken back to Russia. This is done in order to hide information about the state of health of the head of the Kremlin.
