Russia's President Vladimir Putin has been overheard joking about the virility of his Israeli counterpart, who is accused of multiple rape.
A Russian journalist said Mr Putin joked that President Moshe Katsav was a "mighty man", adding "we all envy him".

Mr Katsav is facing allegations that he raped members of his staff. He strongly denies the claims.

A Kremlin spokesman admitted Mr Putin made a joke, but said it was not meant to be overheard.

Mr Putin's comment was made at the end of a press conference held by Mr Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in Moscow, which focused mainly on the Iran crisis.

Russian premiers have a bit of form for rape related jocularity. When Stalin was challenged about the tendency of the Red Army to rape anything that breathed during their invasion of germany, he brushed it off with a couple of cracks about them not having gone all that way without "being able to take some trifling thing" when they finally reached Germany..

Actually pres.Putin said: "What a mighty man he turns out to be! He raped 10 women - I would never have expected this from him. He surprised us all - we all envy him!"

Of course it was a joke with meaning: I doubt that this old pillock was able to do it.

Beware of umbrella wielding security men! (sort of..!)
