Despite the Russia's political isolation, Vladimir Putin was invited to the United Nations General Assembly this Monday, where he met with Barack Obama for about 1.5 hours. They discussed the Syrian conflict, but came out empty-handed. After the meeting Obama came out cold-faced, while Putin tried to stay positive and said that "there's still a chance to work on the issue together". On today's stock photo you see the two presidents walking in for a photo opportunity, which was the shortest POTUS photo op ever - walk in, shake hands, walk out, timed at 13 seconds.
Photoshop this photo of Putin and Obama at the UN General Assembly any way you wish.
Russia's President Vladimir Putin did another publicity stunt to remind of his "action man" status and amuse the public on the national television - this time he descended to the bottom of the Baltic Sea aboard a red submersible. And, whoa, it just happens that he found the 19th-century shipwreck with amphoraes and relics. The previous publicity stunt of the "action man" include - riding Harleys with biker gangs, finding and bringing ancient amphoraes from the sea bottom, stopping forest fires from the plane, and flying with the cranes.
Show what next publicity stunt Putin may have in mind.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has been missing from the public eye for over a week. His scheduled meetings and public appearances have all been canceled. Such long absence of Russia's leader never happened before (since he assumed office in 2000) and sparked numerous rumors about his health. Kremlin's reply? "Everything is fine. His handshake is strong enough to break hands, and he's been extremely busy working on solving the Russia's economic crisis. He has numerous meetings, but they are not public.", Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
Let us show where or how Putin has been hiding.
Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Francois Hollande sat down with Russia's Vladimir Putin this Friday to try and craft a peaceful solution to the Ukraine crisis. Not only the situation over Ukraine is hurting Russia-West relationship, it also splits Europe from the US, since Europe is taking a soft stand while America is pressing for firmer actions against Russia to force Putin to stop supporting Ukrainian rebels and return Crimea to Ukraine. The result of the talks so far? Merkel and Hollande returned back Saturday empty-handed. We don't have decent photos from this meeting, so instead we ask you to
photoshop this photo (any way you wish) taken in 2013, on G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, when they were still on good terms, and the war in Ukraine was not yet in the cards.

The latest round of sanctions against Russia, its political and economic isolation, has put a lot of strain on President Putin and it shows dramatically on his face. Although he tries to appear as "still a strong national leader", his rapidly aging face shows he's suffering from stress and insomnia, analysts say. He erratically recorded one of his urgent speeches to the nation at 2 am, with minimal preparations and makeup - something he's never done before - which again proves he's under a lot of distress and can't sleep at 2 am. Four plastic surgeons studying Putin's appearance in the last 6 months confirm his face goes through regular botox injections, and he's been using more makeup to hide the bags under his eyes and his sweating skin.
Today we'll help Putin save face, by putting him through plastic surgery and/or makeup.
