At an economic forum in St. Petersburg, Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked about the Super Bowl ring that Patriots owner Robert Kraft said that Putin took from him, before saying he was joking, and that the Kremlin says Kraft gave him as a gift in 2005.

Putin says he does not remember meeting Kraft and remembers nothing about a ring, but he made an offer to try to assuage any hurt feelings all the same. Putin proposed having another ring made for Kraft on Putin’s dime if that will make Kraft feel better.
