ST. PETERSBURG, June 18. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted that he envies those who managed to achieve results in yoga.
"You know, I prefer to look at yoga from outside and I very much envy those who achieve some tangible results," Putin said when asked by an Indian journalist at a meeting with the chief executives of the world’s leading news agencies organized by TASS on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum whether he started practicing yoga.
The Russian president underscored that Russia likes Indian culture. "We probably are the only country having a paid channel where Indian movies are constantly shown," he said.
Putin said Russian-Indian relations have long roots.
In July last year, at a meeting in Ufa with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Putin promised to him to start doing yoga.
