The first face to face encounter the world has examined between the President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit, to a different interaction the Internet has turned between the two world leaders.
In camera capture a candid exchanged between the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Putin – as it is fleeting it is a one that is humorous. One hand of Putin in pocket and other emphatically gesturing, appears to be discussing a topic that Merkel seems to find less than riveting based on her reaction. The two were speaking German that one thing we can only assume, a language that Putin, who lived in East Germany from 1985 to 1990, speaks fluently.
The Internet wasted no time in guessing the conversation topic that prompted Merkel's eye roll.

The awkward moment between Merkel and Putin is not the first time they have shared. In a New Yorker profile of 2014 on Merkel that explores relationship of her with Putin, George Packer wrote that Putin brought his dog into a 2007 meeting with Merkel, who is afraid of dogs:
"In 2007, during discussions about energy supplies at the Russian President's residence in Sochi, Putin summoned his black Lab, Koni, into the room where he and Merkel were seated. As dog approached and sniffed her, Merkel froze, visibly frightened. She'd been bitten once, in 1995, and her fear of dogs couldn't have escaped Putin, who sat back and enjoyed the moment, legs spread wide. 'I'm sure it will behave itself,' he said. To reply Merkel had a presence of mind, in Russian, 'It doesn't eat journalists, after all.' The German press corps was furious on her behalf-'ready to hit Putin,' according to a reporter who was present. Later, Merkel interpreted Putin's behavior. 'I understand why he has to do this-to prove he's a man,' she told a group of reporters. 'He's afraid of his own weakness. Russia has nothing, no successful politics or economy. All they have is this.'"
