One Ukrainian spotted the similarity between these two images
Comparison is just the latest bizarre photo involving the premier and animals

There are characteristics of dogs that particularly ruthless politicians might be happy to possess.
Energetic, loyal, aggressive and deadly are just a few comparisons that might flatter a country's leader.
But Russian President Vladimir Putin will probably be less than happy when he discovers that one internet user has spotted an eerie resemblance between him and this dog
The image was posted online by a man from Ukraine, perhaps after noticing the pair's similarly steely stare.
Whatever caused him to notice the likeness one thing's for certain, you wouldn't want to be found laughing about it behind the ex-KGB agent's back.
The comedy comparison is only the latest episode in the weird saga involving the Russian premier relationship with animals.
