«Here they posted my butterfly style swimming, where I'm so clumsy, but sometimes I like to swim like this. In some pool I've never been to. I don't know what kind of pool it is. But I swam like that. When and where? In the Yenisei in 2016. Well, in such cases, it's just compilation, it's editing. In the language of one of our famous characters, you need to say: «Boring, girls». Well, at least they would have thought of something else», Putin said.
