Russian President Vladimir Putin visited an “oceanarium” that is being built on Russky Island in Vladivostok on Sunday. While there, according to the Presidential Press and Information Office, Putin “watched brief performances by dolphins and walruses” and toured the construction.

Putin also posed for photos with some of the animals and gave a high five to one of the walruses (pictured above). The English-language recap of the trip posted by the Presidential Press and Information Office noted Putin is “monitoring the construction work and has visited the site on a number of occasions already.”
