When Vladimir Putin 'flirted' with China's First Lady Peng Liyuan during APEC summit

Wellington: Vladimir Putin reportedly flirted with First Lady Peng Liyuan during Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit's event, when he put on his coat on her.

 

 

 

As leaders of 21 Asia-Pacific nations including Russia have converged upon Beijing for the summit, the Russian President was seated next to Chinese First Lady Peng Liyuan, who in turn sat next to her husband, Chinese President Xi Jinping during the event, Stuff.co.nz reported.

 

While Xi was talking to Barack Obama, Putin after a brief exchange, abruptly stood up, grasped a tan coat in both hands, and wrapped it chivalrously around the First Lady's shoulders.

 

Peng smiled gracefully, thanked him, and sat down - only to surreptitiously slip the coat from her shoulders moments later into the waiting arms of an attendant.

 

As the video of this exchange went viral on the internet, censors kicked into action and Chinese news sites pulled it off their sites.
