Russian strongman and former KGB Colonel, Vladimir Putin, gave the King of Bahrain a stallion when the monarch visited Russia, and received a sword made from fine Damascus steel and precious metal.
The horse is called Khadjibek and is an Akhal-Teke, a breed known for speed, endurance and intelligence.
In 2010, Russia gave Barack Obama a Blue Ray disc set mounted in a wooden display box, and is now in control of Damascus, unlike Obama, who isn’t.
Many argue that Vladimir Putin is the New Constantine.
