In his latest encounter with animals, Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning to fly with a flock of Siberian cranes and lead them from captivity to freedom in the project ‘Flight of Hope’.

He has taken upon his shoulders the responsibility of guiding them to their destination – these birds have been bred in captivity and do not know their way about the world.

This has been reported in telegraph.co.uk of dated the 6th of September 2012.

Vladimir Putin has always tried to prove that he is different from other leaders and has, in the past, shot a tiger with a tranquillizer dart, fixed an electronic tracker to a polar bear, and would now embark on a trip by flying in a motorized hang glider to guide the flock of rare Siberian cranes.

President Putin’s itinerary is to first go to the Yamal region of northern Russia where he will meet up with scientists and assist them to release a small group of the Siberian cranes and Putin would act as a guide for these birds to set them off on the first leg of their winter migration route toward Central Asia.
