SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- The head of Corendon Dutch Airlines said he was detained near the Sochi Olympics for urinating on a fence outside President Vladimir Putin's villa.

Airline boss Atilay Uslu said he was out with a friend Sunday night celebrating the Olympic performances of Dutch skaters when he stopped to urinate on a fence and quickly found himself surrounded by about five Russian soldiers, DutchNews.nl reported Monday.

Uslu said the soldiers were talking about a "one way ticket to Siberia and asked me if I had not seen the security cameras or knew that it was Putin's house."

Uslu, whose company sponsors many of the Netherland's skaters in the Olympics, said he was released after about an hour, but he noticed about $1,364 cash was missing from his belongings.

"I don't really feel like trying to get it back," Uslu said.
