While some of the Instagram photos might be an excuse to show off chiseled abs, they clearly took Vladimir Putin’s frequent shirtless photos to heart.

“Go hard like Vladimir,” captioned one man on Instagram.

However, some supporters used it as an excuse to repost Vladimir’s latest shirtless photos. “Good man no need for upper garment,” wrote an Instagram fan page for Putin.
