Putin in a submarine - level 2

Putin in a submarine - level 2

24-08-2015 15:00

Russian President Vladimir Putin descended to the bottom of the Black Sea in a submarine. He looked at shipwrecks from the 11th century.

He said that there were a lot of objects there, and that the ship wreckage could be seen very well. Several top Russian officials were at the pier in the Sevastopol port to watch their president.

This was Putin's second dive in the Black Sea. In 2011, he dove off the coast of southern Russia.

Difficult words: descend (to move down), several (a few), pier (a platform which goes from the shore into the sea).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
