MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. The 20-kilogram pike that Russian President Vladimir Putin hooked during a fishing trip in Siberia in 2013 was a fair catch, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"The pike was real, no matter what you say," Peskov told reporters during a roundtable discussion at TASS, reviewing Putin's 15 years in power.
The specimen pike was caught at Siberia's remote Lake Tokpak-Khol in July 2013. Peskov said then that the lake "was abundant with fish".
"Even the gamekeeper who accompanied Putin said he had never seen anything like it."
