WOODBURY - New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is claiming Russian president Vladamir Putin stole one of his Super Bowl rings.

Kraft showed his 2005 championship ring to Putin during a meeting in Russia.

Kraft says Putin took the ring off, put it on and walked out with his security.

Kraft said then it was a gift. However, now Kraft says he was pressured by the White house to say it was a gift.

A spokesman for Putin insists the ring was a gift and calls Kraft's story "weird."
