Canadian prime minister disses Putin: 'I guess I'll shake your hand'

Russian President Vladimir Putin took a beating at the G-20 summit in Australia this weekend from other world leaders critical of his handling of the situation in Ukraine.

"I guess I'll shake your hand," Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told Putin, quickly adding, "You need to get out of Ukraine."

Putin left the summit early, though he said his departure was not due to his colleagues' ribbing, but rather because he needed to get some sleep.
