G20 Organizers Didn’t Dare to Sideline Putin’s Bodyguard

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard



The special correspondent of Komsomolskaya Pravda Dmitry Smirnov wrote about a curious moment at the G20 summit in Hamburg. The organizers of the international event didn’t let in the bodyguards of the leaders of the “twenty” countries, except until Vladimir Putin arrived.

In the short video it is seen how the bodyguard of the South African President was sidelined, as well as the Prime Minister of India’s. At the end of the 45-second video Putin’s arrival is shown, his bodyguard unperturbably continues on behind the Russian President under the furious look of the German security guard.

“There is no person who desires to stop the Russians in Germany: at G20 the organisers didn’t allow personal bodyguards to pass through together with their leaders, except until Putin arrived,” wrote the journalist along with the video.
