A video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi driving around in a golf cart with Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken the social media by storm.

The footage captured an informal moment at Putin’s residence in Novo-Ogaryovo, near Moscow, on Monday. The video shows PM Modi, accompanied by Putin and two delegates seated behind, enjoying a drive, a sight that reminds netizens of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s limousine drive with Putin.

The two leaders enjoyed tea on a terrace and visited the stables. Putin personally guided PM Modi around his residence, giving him a tour in an electric car.

According to reports by the Russian news agency TASS, they mainly conversed through interpreters. However, they did have a brief tete-a-tete conversation in English while walking to the garden.

Putin visited North Korea in June 2024 when he and Kim took turns driving each other around in a Russian-built Aurus limousine. Footage from that event showed the two leaders smiling and laughing behind the wheel.
