Putin’s underwater “archaeology”

I couldn’t make this up if I tried. According to UPI, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s spokesman recently admitted that the PM’s “Black Sea archaeological find this summer was staged.” I doubt the “action man,” as The Atlantic recently dubbed him, really cared if archaeologists had put the amphorae where he could find them. Either way the find offered a killer photo op.
