President Vladimir Putin will soon recommence his “active hobbies” despite several months of speculation about his health, his spokesman said Monday.
“Vladimir Putin will continue his active hobbies. Maybe he will go scuba diving in the summer. He continues the fight to preserve endangered species,” Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Izvestia on Monday.
According to anonymous sources cited by the paper, plans for the coming year include playing ice-hockey and a visit to Antarctica.
Putin accepted an invitation from Chilean President Sebastian Pinera to visit a Russian-Chilean Antarctic research station in September last year.
Although it had earlier been assumed Putin would make the visit at the height of the Antarctic summer in January, Peskov said the date had not yet been set.
“But he will continue to pursue his activities in conservation as he has in the past,” he told the paper.
Rumors about Putin’s health began to circulate shortly after a much publicized microlight flight with endangered cranes in Siberia in September.
An apparent cancellation of several engagements, including the annual International Arctic conference he traditionally hosts, and a decision to work more from his residence outside Moscow instead of traveling in to work led to speculation that he had hurt his back during the flight.
Izvestia had previously led speculation that Putin’s injuries and his advancing age — he turned 60 in October — had led his spin doctors to consider dropping his long-cultivated action man image in favor of a make-over as a “wise patriarch.”

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Speaking with the representatives of Russian business community, who are currently participating in an Antarctic expedition, Putin said:
“As I know, there are people among you, who are ready to participate in research of the continent, I know that you have the ideas to support our scientists… and all the specialists, who are involved in this prospective research… Russia’s presence in the Antarctic region is vitally important.”
The Russian leader said the research activities in the region around the South Pole helps in exploration of the Earth, adding that more than 80 percent of the planet’s fresh water was in the Antarctic region.
The Antarctica was discovered by the expedition led by Russian explorers Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev in 1820. Since then, Russian scientists have been involved in exploration of the southern continent. According to the international Antarctic Treaty, only scientific activities are allowed to be held at the continent.
