Putin’s reply came as he spoke to reporters in Turkmenistan on Wednesday.
He was responding to a question about some of the recent mockery of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other G7 leaders during a summit in Germany.
Jokingly, PM Johnson said his allies should undress for the photo shoot – to show that they are “tougher than Putin”.
“I don’t know how they want to undress, waist-high or not, but I think it would be a disgusting sight,” Putin said.
“Everything must be developed harmoniously in a person, both body and soul. However, in order for everything to be in harmony, one must give up excessive drinking and give up other bad habits, start exercising, exercising,” Putin was quoted as saying. Russia TodayThursday (30/6/2022).

Johnson, on another occasion, attacked Putin by describing his war in Ukraine as a “macho invasion”. “That wouldn’t have happened if Putin had been a woman,” Johnson said.
The Russian leader retaliated; “I just wanted to remind you of the events of modern history, when Margaret Thatcher made the decision to launch military action against Argentina in the Falkland Islands. Here’s a woman, decided to launch military action. Where are the Falkland Islands and where is Britain? And this is determined only by imperial ambitions.”
“So coming from the current British Prime Minister, this is not a true statement in light of what happened today,” Putin said.
Vladimir Putin visited Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, on Wednesday, during his first overseas trip since the start of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.
