Putins bare-chested horseriding pics mercilessly mocked by Boris and G7 leaders

Leaders of some of the world's most powerful countries were cracking jokes at Vladimir Putin's topless pics at the G7 meeting in the Bavarian mountains in Germany.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canada's Justin Trudeau were among the leaders poking fun at the Russian leader over bizarre snaps of him shooting bears and riding horses topless.

As world leaders began discussing the current situation in Ukraine, the PM insisted that “we have to show that we’re tougher than Putin" as he took off his jacket.

Which led to the Canadian president suggesting they go for a “bare-chested horseback ride" as Boris added that they need to: "show our pecks".

However, the meeting wasn't all gaffs from Mr Johnson as he used his first meeting to warn France's President Macron not to go soft on Ukraine.

He also insisted that an unfair peace agreement must not be signed by Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

He said: "Any attempt to settle the conflict now will only cause enduring instability and give Putin licence to manipulate both sovereign countries and international markets in perpetuity.”

It comes after Johson spoke in an interview with ITV News where he said that the most important thing for western leaders to do for them is to remain united in their support.

At the summit in Baravia, he said: "I think that Volodymyr Zelensky has done an absolutely amazing job of leading his country and leading world opinion in an appalling time."

When asked if he would offer Zelenskyy a state visit to the UK, he added: "If he ever becomes free to leave and it makes sense for him to leave Ukraine, then obviously the UK would be only too honoured to host him.

"But the most important thing is for us to continue to be united here at the G7. And we are."

Yesterday, reports emerged that Putin had been dealt a humiliating blow after a Russian surface-to-air missile boomeranged back at his troops.

A bizarre video shows the weapon being fired into the air before it turned back and slammed into where it came from, causing an enormous explosion.

Kremlin troops reportedly launched a missile to intercept an oncoming Ukrainian plane as it flew over the Ukrainian city of Alchevsk in the Luhansk region, in the early hours of Friday morning (June 24).

The area is currently under occupation of pro-Russian separatist forces and is on the front line of the Russia-Ukraine War.

Meanwhile, Putin is set to leave Russia for the first time since the invasion of Ukraine.

The Russian leader will visit two small former Soviet states in central Asia this week, Russian state television reported today (June 26).

Pavel Zarubin, the Kremlin correspondent of the Rossiya 1 state television station, said Putin would visit Tajikistan and Turkmenistan and then meet Indonesian President Joko Widodo for talks in Moscow.
