Russian President Accused of Stealing Super Bowl Ring

Posted: Updated:

Eight years ago, Kraft and other business men met Russian President Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg. The Patriots had just beaten the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl, and Mr. Kraft had in his possession one of the Super Bowl rings, which he shared with Putin.      

Putin initially placed the ring on his finger and admired it in front of the press before departing the room without returning it. At the time, Kraft stated that it was a gift of goodwill to Putin and that nothing unusual had taken place. Now Kraft is telling a different story claiming Putin took the ring without his consent.     

Kraft was reportedly urged by the White House not to say anything negative about the matter, and let it go.      

Putin's spokesman is denying that the ring was stolen, saying it was in fact a gift and that Putin had even offered to purchase one of the rings.
