The Kremlin’s press service released an archive of video recorded between 2005-2009, one of which shows Russian President Vladimir Putin and then-US President George W. Bush together, performing a traditional Russian dance ‘Sudarynia – Barynia’ (‘Lady – Landlady’), with a folk ensemble.
The footage shows Putin dancing in a roundelay on a stage while Bush dances separately near the Russian president, paired with a female participant from the troupe dressed in a folk costume.

After the Sudarynia – Barynia tune ends, Putin kisses the hand of one of the female dancers and both presidents, laughing, return to the table where Bush’s wife Laura awaits.
