In “not very hard to believe” news, Russian President Vladimir Putin—he of shirtless horseback riding fame—did something shocking and internationally insensitive. Along with Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi (no stranger to controversy himself), Putin helped himself to a 240 year-old bottle of Spanish wine belonging to a Crimean winery.
