Putin explores shipwreck aboard mini-submarine

Russian President Vladimir Putin took to a red submersible to dive 50m (164 ft) and examine the wreck of a 19th century frigate.

Wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and white sporting shoes, Putin sat comfortably in the capsule's glassed front as it was submerged into the Gulf of Finland to look at the wooden wreck.
