In Putin's Russia, seals club you.

If we have to have a war with Russia one day, at least there's a chance that the last thing you see will be really adorable. Not really, of course, because these seals are apparently just very patriotic circus animals named Weasel and Winnie the Pooh, who were trained to do this act as part of the general fervor sweeping Russia around the 70th Victory Day celebrating the defeat of the Nazis in WWII.

Roughly translated from the original Russian news site:

Weasel and her friend Winnie the Pooh greet superiors. For now, they are not ordinary seals [they are] Baikal special forces soldiers. Early wake up, physical training. Naturally, lessons in shooting....Despite the fact that the Weasel - a girl, and Pooh - boy, the hardships they suffer the same service. Bravely and courageously.
