The President of Russia Vladimir Putin with humor reacted to the awkward situation that arose during a meeting with the head of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug — Ugra Natalia Komarova.

The Governor of KHMAO by mistake took the chair intended for the President. The head of state did not ask for Komarov to change places, and just moved the sheet with the handle on his side.

Whatever happens, the main thing is to remain calm and sense of humor, even if you by mistake took the place of the President. «It is also a good place», — said Putin at a meeting with the Governor Komarova pic.twitter.com/rpMdMtowdX
