Putin said, "Yoga is something I've never done so far but it can't help being attractive. I'll see what my condition permits me to do proceeding from the level of my physical fitness. When you look at real yogis, it seems no one can attain this kind of perfection and the thought stops you."
The President made the remark at a meeting with Prime Minister Modi on the sidelines of the simultaneous summits of BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) at Ufa in the western Urals, after Modi thanked Moscow for supporting India's idea to mark June 21 as International Yoga Day at the level of the UN. Modi also thanked the Russian side for widely marking the International Yoga Day this year.
