Vladimir Putin has told the press that the beluga spy was a rogue whale that was acting independently.
Putin claims that the whale may have been planning to defect to The West, after a passport and a packed lunch were also discovered on him.
The whale spent the night in a top Oslo hotel, but refused to comment about why he was wearing the GoPro camera when he arrived.
‘No comment,’ said The Whale.
‘I’ve nothing further to add,’ he added.
