Russian President Vladimir Putin stripped to his bathing trunks and took a dip in the freezing waters in the Moscow region on Tuesday, as a part of the traditional celebration of the Orthodox Epiphany.
Putin's spokesperson Dmitri Peskov earlier commented that the event is a tradition for the Russian leader.
The traditional bathing ritual is held at night from January 18 to 19 when it is believed that the water can not only purify the body but also cure diseases, cleanse the soul and strengthen faith.
Epiphany marks the baptism of Christ on January 19, in accordance with the Julian calendar of the Russian Orthodox Church.

  • Wim Hof!

  • How many mistresses, torrid affairs and love children is a married, Orthodox Christian allowed to have? Put not your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save. (Psalm 146). Then again, the Orthodox Church has a long history of meekly submitting to whoever was in charge.

  • Naughty, naughty, Daddy Poots! You didn’t send me a card on my 17th birthday! And, I’m still waiting for that yacht you promised me, for keeping my gob shut. 😡

  • Just Putin ☦🇧🇬🇷🇺🇧🇬🇷🇺

  • What is happening in Russia now? It looks very scary. I thought it was a peaceful country. Someone told me that Mr Putin has a big, secret palace, but I didn’t believe them. I told them Mr Putin wouldn’t have a palace because he shares his money and helps poor people in Russia, like a true Christian.

  • Navalny has more charachter and balls than all of Putins thiefs combined

  • zapoï ....et bigot

  • he leads by example

  • This ritual has nothing to do with Scriptures, in fact it's not even in Scriptures!! It's a man made ritual and NOT of GOD.

    • @jeannine Poulin Thank you for your kind reply and I respect your viewpoint. 🙏

    • @Amanda Jordan Yes, I agree with a lot of what you said. The catholics and orthodox have sadly instilled paganism to what they think is Christianity. In the days of the apostles there were no such rituals and even during the times of the apostle Paul. I would call it rather early paganism instead of early Christianity because true followers of Jesus Christ never did those man made rituals. God bless you and yours.

    • @jeannine Poulin I think there may be some misunderstanding here. The water dipping shown on the video is a Russian Orthodox tradition which goes back to the early days of Christianity. Catholics did not invent it. Yes, a tradition is man made (by definition). I am not disputing that. This particular Orthodox tradition commemorates the Baptism of Jesus, not the visit of the 3 kings. That is celebrated by the Catholic Church and some other Christian denominations on 6th January. I agree with you that the water dipping is not a real baptism, and that many who do it probably have no idea how it originated, apart from it being a healthy thing to do, apparently, and was practised in cold countries, like Sweden, long before Christianity emerged. It’s a bit like Christmas. Many celebrate it without thinking about the Christian meaning and their over the top celebrating is more reminiscent of the earlier pagan festival which Christianity replaced.

    • @Amanda Jordan Oh Please !! Their man made feast called Epiphany is to celebrate the 3 KINGS and other events............... LOOK IT UP YOURSELF what that catholic man made tradition is about... before you comment!!!! Furthermore, which Scriptures are YOU talking about? This is CLEARLY NOT a baptism.... diping yourself in freezing water year after year is....a man made ritual and NOT a baptism. Give me just ONE Scriptures that says that it is to be done ......... year after year?? From what I KNOW............... NO ONE IN SCRIPTURES had been baptized year after year after year........ they got baptized........... ONCE!!!! Catholics invented this ritual as they did many more rituals that are NOT of GOD and NOT in SCRIPTURES.

    • Which Scriptures are you talking about? The Baptism of Jesus is mentioned in 3 of the Gospels!

  • 👍🏻❤️🖖🏻💪🏻🙋🏼‍♀️

  • The only President to do this type of thing ..... both as a Christian and as a real man against the cold

    • In the name of Marx, and of Lenin, and of the Holy Joe, Amen.

    • Jesus bless Russia

  • God bless Russia... Slava Rassiye💐💐💐

  • The boss 🙌🏻👍🏻💪🏻

  • **INCREDIBLE!!!... WE'RE IN XXI SIECLE!!!!.... MITHYCS RITUALS ARE NOT GOOD TO GOVERN A COUNTRY**

They make money and destroyed the people. Make peace no war, because the giga elite have the power and now we need eachother and take care. WE are the PEOPLE. Never ever give up. Thx mister Poetin.❤️

  • Shitty-ass Western Media : President Vladimir Putin swims for his day 57 quarantine vacation.

  • My president! Proud , trust , respect!!!!

  • Cold water is said to be good for one's immune system. Perhaps if everyone did this, people wouldn't believe they need a cov vx. 💜🙏 ps perhaps that is an epiphany.

    • Why is it good for the immune system? Is hot water also good?

    • При обливании ледяной водой организм поднимает температуру тела до 42 градусов, убиваются все болезнетворные микробы в организме, человек чувствует эйфорию.

    • Lol. What if I want to do it but where I live dont have snow...

    • Fact

  • Love Russia ❤️❤️❤️

  • The world hopes this is not a lie

    • @Peter Vypov Mike Pence was supposed to be a Christian too, in the end he was a traitor. We'll see.

    • @Sebastian Bratu he is a Christian; that's not a show but tradition.

    • @Sebastian Bratu yes he is, remember Syria.

    • What I mean is, hope that Putin is on the side of Christians and not just making a show

    • All people of Russia doing this yearly if they are in good health condition. Its their tradition as an Russian Orthodox Christian. This is called the Feast of Ephiphany.

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👍🇱🇺

  • Putin te.r.r.o.r.i.s.t

  • Shame on you Putin to have left Armenians die and Christian territory lost in front of you and you done nothing to help Armenians or stop the war

  • Синие трусики Навального...

  • Defining what he's supposed to be doing it for: Epiphany is one of three major Orthodox Christian celebrations along with Christmas and Easter. In the Orthodox Church, Epiphany celebrates the baptism of Jesus rather than the arrival of the Magi (Three wise men) which is celebrated on 6 January as Epiphany in the Western Church. So I'm believing this took place on the day the Congress went and showed their true colors on the 6th of Jan '21. Orthodox...so close to Catholics in their traditions. Not really understanding how they are even called Christian. Christian Faith doesn't cross themselves with that hand gesture of a cross figure. Christians go straight to God and Jesus Christ, that is a Catholic and obvious Orthodox thing.

    • Roman Catholics make the Sign of the Cross at the beginning and end of all prayers, so I’m not sure if you are including them in your statement. Some Christian denominations do not make the Sign of the Cross. Lutherans do, I think. In the RC Church, the Epiphany is on 6th January, and celebrates when the 3 kings visited the baby Jesus and gave him gold, frankincense and myrrh. It signifies the showing of God to the gentiles, hence the name, Epiphany. Traditionally, it is the last day of Christmas. The Baptism of the Lord occurs a week or so later, and is not celebrated as much (apart from attending Mass). The RC Epiphany is a big thing in countries like Spain, when children get presents (even bigger than Christmas Day!). Either way, it is a Christian tradition and I respect both ways of celebrating it.

  • Ce n'est pas en France qu'on verrais une prière...
