The Russian head of state is accustomed to long-distance and rather hard trips. In a major tour of Russia in 2010 the president visited within 10 days Tiksi, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Khabarovsk, Norilsk, Krasnoyarsk and during four days was driving a yellow Lada-Kalina car from Khabarovsk to Chita.
The current foreign trip that will last for exactly a week is similar in distance and time. In the air alone, Putin will have to spend about two days, exactly 46 hours.
The flight back from Brasilia to Moscow will take about 15 hours. During this time the president will fly 11170 kilometres. As a result, the total distance of the trip will be 35600 kilometres.
