Vladimir Putin’s spokesman has been caught on camera dozing off during an important meeting between his boss and Turkish President Recep Erdogan. The incident happened in the north-western Turkish city of Istanbul as and when the press spokesman apparently found the subject so interesting, he appeared to fall asleep.
The Turkish President was talking about further cooperation between the two countries and agreements that had just been signed when Dmitry Peskov lost his fight with sleep.
The incident was reported by Belarusian and Ukrainian media who noticed Putin’s sleeping spokesman and made it front-page news.
It is reportedly not first time Peskov was caught sleeping during important meetings.
