October 29, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Halloween is not due until Sunday but it seems that the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin cannot wait for it. Recently Putin was seen wearing heavy makeup to hide two dark patches under his eyes during the meeting with Ukrainian leaders in Kiev on Wednesday. The Russian and Ukrainian media immediately went on a frenzy to ascertain what could have caused the two dark patches under Putin’s eyes.

Thanks to his macho attitude, Vladimir Putin has carved out an image of himself as a tiger wrestling tough man in the recent years. Putin is an avid practitioner of martial arts and he swims on a regular basis as well. This Wednesday Putin appeared at the political meet wearing heavy make-up to conceal the two dark patches under his eyes.

Some of the Putin fans think that the Prime Minister might have caught an elbow or a kick beneath the eye during a Judo match. A few others suggest that the long work hours and tiredness after the flights could have the reason behind the dark patches. Putin is a very busy man indeed and his busy flight schedule might have caused the eye circles. On the other hand, a few others believe that the aging Prime Minister might have had a cosmetic procedure to restore his looks.

The controversy was later cleared up by Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Peskov said that the marks were not due to bruising and blamed the lighting in the room for the effect. The spokesman also said that Vladimir Putin was fatigued during the meeting which might have led to the development of the dark eye circles.
