What’s that Vlad? Putin’s embarrassing technical glitch at world climate summit
The Leaders Summit on Climate Change was attended by Boris Johnson, Joe Biden and the Russian President along with others via video call. But when Mr Putin was called to speak in the climate summit, he suffered a technical glitch.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken gave “the floor to the President of the Russian Federation” after a speech from Mr Macron.
No reply came from Mr Putin, who loomed silently for over a minute while the world leaders waited.
Mr Blinken, flustered by the lack of reply, tried alerting Mr Putin to no avail.
He then suggested: “He may be getting Macron…because that was a tape of Macron…”
Mr Putin, after 30 more seconds of silence, began speaking.
