Even diplomatic protocol could not disguise awkward moments at the meeting of US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It’s obvious there is no good chemistry between those two men: the chilly look that Barak Obama gave Mr Putin at lunch and perfunctory handshake before their talks, which Mr. Putin called “surprisingly frank”. That is usually diplomatic polite expression for a heated argument.

It was their first formal face-to-face discussion since 2013, though apparently they have had some brief encounters since then.

Judging from the reactions of media commentators Russian President appears to have won many points speaking at United Nation. Despite Mr. Obama’s condemnation of Russia’s intervention in eastern Ukraine on the side of pro-Russian rebels Vladimir Putin skillfully kept the world’s focus on the Syria conflict.

At lunch Mr. Putin appeared sitting comfortably at the top table talking with US President again only about Syrian crisis.

Very interesting: in photo opportunities Vladimir Putin smiled more than Mr. Obama – though some said that Putin’s smiles were satisfied smirk.

It seems like President of Russia had stolen the spotlight at the United Nations, with a stubborn push on the Syria crisis.
