Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the "oceanarium" at Far Eastern University in Vladivostock Sunday.

There were dolphins there.

And some walruses.

Which he high-fived.

And LOLed at.

Far Eastern University opened a $2 billion campus in 2012, and "the Kremlin expects it will join the list of both Russia's and the world's best universities within a decade," according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
