ST. PETERSBURG, Russia – Russian President Vladimir Putin was hilariously videoed struggling to decipher his own hand notes.

“My writing looks like chicken scratch,” Russian President Vladimir Putin joked as he attempted to read his own notes during a meeting with Members of the Federal Assembly’s Council of Legislators, in St. Petersburg on Friday.

Putin took notes in order to comment on deputies’ proposals, but had to take a 20-second pause as he attempted to decipher them.

“My writing looks like chicken scratch, so I can’t read it. I’m just in a hurry, a lot of interesting proposals, I’m in a rush. All right,” the president said.
