Russian president, Vladimir Putin has been caught on camera appearing to nod off as the Ukrainian national anthem was played while the Ukrainian team matched.
The strongman leader seemed to be” dozing off” when Ukraine’s athletes were introduced at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics.
The Ukrainian competitors waved the flag in front of president Putin during the Beijing display amid dramatic tensions and drums of war between both countries.
Footage shows Putin’s eyes were shut as the Ukrainians saluted towards him.
Around 100,000 Russian soldiers are massed on Ukraine’s borders and fears are rising as Moscow is allegedly planning a full invasion.
