Sydney, Feb 02 (ANI): Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is all praise for twelve female students who posed for an "erotic" calendar to honour his 58th birthday.
Putin told supermodel Naomi Campbell that they were "courageous", reports British GQ magazine.
"As student journalists, they couldn't fail to understand what might have been said to them after doing this," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying.
"Nonetheless, they were not deterred and did the calendar anyway. So, frankly, that's what I liked the most."
Twelve Moscow State University journalism students posed in lingerie to mark Putin's October 7 birthday with a calendar that was sold at Groupe Auchan SA supermarkets in Moscow for 259 rubles (8.75 pounds) apiece. (ANI)
