"It was turning into yet another boring visit to Crimea to spit in the face of Ukraine when I decided it was time the world finally discovered the location of the lost city of Atlantis. So I hopped into a submersible and after very little effort proved to the world I am the world's greatest archaeologist," said Putin, who held what he called "The Trident of Atlantis."

as a symbol of submission by the ancient lost city of Atlantis.
Putin added, "It's settled now. Atlantis is in the Black Sea. It just had a referendum, and 100% of its inhabitants want the city to become a part of the Soviet Unio... I mean Russian Federation, which has accepted it. They gave me the "Trident to the City."
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko condemned Putin's presence in Crimea and commented, "Atlantis? Seriously?"
The Kremlin announced the Trident of Atlantis would be used as a fork by Putin at all state dinners.
