President Vladimir Putin praised Russian women for being 'beautiful, bright and charming' during his annual International Women's Day address earlier today.
International Women's Day is a public holiday in Russia but instead of promoting equality, it is still largely focused on celebrating traditional gender roles.
Leader - Video - Address - Women - 'center
The strongman leader said in his video address that women acted as the 'center of gravity for the whole family' and praised their ability to give 'warmth and comfort'.
He said: 'In this day and age, you have attained the heights of practically all professions ... and at the same time you remain beautiful, charismatic, charming, the center of gravity for the whole family, uniting it with your love, with your capacity to inspire and support, to give warmth and comfort.'
Putin - Woman - Figure - Things - Workout
Putin added: 'What does a young woman need to maintain her figure? Three things: a workout machine, a masseuse and a suitor.'
