Vladimir Putin looks BORED as camera glitch cuts to him while Macron is speaking at climate change conference
VLADIMIR Putin looked bored as the camera accidentally cut to him while Emmanuel Macron was speaking during a climate change conference.
Red faced officials scrambled to fix the glitch when they realised Russian President was unaware it was his turn to speak as he continued staring blankly with the cameras on him.
The footage begins with Macron talking but he is then cut off by the moderator who turns the floor over to Putin but the French President keeps taking.
Kremlin strongman looks bored as he stares into space, during the White House hosted event.
But then appears bewildered as the feed all starts going haywire and he starts asking an aide off camera what is happening.
Eventually the moderator says “the floor is to the President of the Russian Federation, Mr Vladimir Putin”.
When he did speak, he told the meeting: “It is no secret that the conditions that facilitated global warming go way back. But what kind of comprehensive solutions can we see today?'
“It's not enough to tackle the issue of new emissions, it is also important to take up the task of absorbing the CO2 that is already in the atmosphere.”
Putin was hit by a glitch in January when he was “beheaded” on screen as he made his televised New Year’s message
A channel in Kaliningrad – the country’s most westerly region – blamed a "technical glitch” rather than a political protest for the embarrassing mistake.
Horrified editors soon realised the error and aborted the broadcast on both television and the internet, replacing it with music.
Those responsible would be “punished” after the embarrassing mistake, station bosses said.
Only the lower half of the Russian strongman’s head was visible to viewers as addressed the nation against a backdrop of the Kremlin.
The president’s annual address is traditionally broadcast a few minutes before midnight in each of Russia’s 11 time zones.
It has a status akin to the Queen’s Christmas Day message in Britain and the Commonwealth.
