Russian President Vladimir Putin submerges on board Sea Explorer 5 bathyscaphe off the island of Gogland 180 kilometers (110 miles) west of St. Petersburg, Russia, Monday, July 15, 2013, Putin rode a small submersible craft 60 meters (200 feet) down to see the remains of the naval frigate Oleg, which sank in 1869, Russian news reports said. Putin's latest media event was modest by the stunt-happy Russian leader's standards, a half-hour trip to the bottom of the Gulf of Finland to see a shipwreck.
