A NEW volcanic island has emerged from the Pacific Ocean that looks like Russian president Vladimir Putin.
The still-smoking mile-long island is facing towards the coast of nearby Tonga with an acquisitive smile playing across its cruel stone lips.
A Kremlin spokesman said: “Do islands not emerge spontaneously from the sea floor in the shape of your leaders’ faces? How odd.
“We weren’t going to claim this as Russian territory, but it now seems daft not to, given the resemblance.”
The island has already formed a naturally occurring military airstrip and several large caves where you could, if you wanted, park about 300 armoured personnel carriers.
