President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin traveled on a high-speed train to China's coastal city Tianjin during the afternoon of June 8, after wrapping up a series of events in Beijing.

They watched a friendly Sino-Russian youth ice hockey game in Tianjin, exchanged team uniforms and took a group photo with the players.

Putin also tried to make two kinds of Tianjin local snacks, goubuli baozi (stuffed buns) and jianbingguozi (pancakes with fried dough sticks) during a state banquet with President Xi at Friday night.

When he served his handmade jianbingguozi to President Xi, Putin said he wanted Xi to remember that the snack is Putin-made.
