Russian job site published the results of its survey on Friday, which revealed that the statistics proved the President Vladimir Putin is in fact the best looking man in the country.

Meanwhile, Russian women seem to disagree completely, with 18 percent of those asked saying that there aren't any handsome men in the country. said: "Russians still call Vladimir Putin the most attractive famous man in the country.


"Neither actors nor athletes or other politicians can compete with him today.

It's been a good few months for Vladimir Putin, who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize at the end of last year.

He was put forward for the prestigious award by a group of Russian writers, led by Sergey Komkov.

Speaking at the time, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the nomination was not made by the Kremlin.

According to Tass news agency, he said: "You all know that completely different people are nominated for this award, this is an initiative of those submitting the nomination.

"In this case, [the nomination was submitted by] the aforementioned writer [Komkov].

"If this decision is made [to award Putin the prize], great, if not, it's no problem as well."

Putin was also nominated for the prize in 2013 and joined US President Donald Trump on last year's list of nominees. He was nominated by Christian Tybring-Gjedde - a right wing Norwegian politician - for his work in brokering a deal between Israel and the UAE.

In his nomination letter, Tybring-Gjedde wrote: "As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity."
