Well it made news in Russia, didn't it?
Oh come on, it's not common at all. It's just not. I can kiss my own kid on the stomach, but sure as hell not my neighbor's.
Oh really? How many homeless kids do you have in your country? About a million? Half a million? He really must suck as a father then.
This is cheap. He could have done much better if he sent qualified people to handle the situation. You must know how chaotic this "operation" was.
Ah! So Putin went for the farting noise! I better watch the video again and pay attention for the sound. Maybe he does have a strange fetish, after all.
you sound extremely immature and unsophisticated yourself. Peace.
Putin compares stomach kiss incident to stroking a cat
Jul 06 12:33 PM US/Eastern
Russian President Vladimir Putin has explained why he stopped to kiss a small boy on the stomach as he was walking through the Kremlin, saying it was a spontaneous gesture similar to stroking a cat.
"It was an unplanned meeting -- people just came up and started talking to me," Putin said, recalling the June 28 incident when he encountered the boy, Nikita, among a group of tourists, lifted the boy's shirt and planted a kiss on his stomach.
"He seemed very independent and serious. At the same time a child is always defenceless and nice. I wanted to stroke him like a cat and it came out in this gesture. There was nothing behind it," Putin said in an Internet question and answer session with Russian and foreign audiences.
The stomach kiss incident has prompted a rash of speculation and comment in the Russian media and major public interest ahead of Putin's question and answer session Thursday.
