Vladimir Putin – The Polarizing Bear of Russia?

Putin's University

In 1970, Putin would carry on his education at the Leningrad State University (now known as Saint Petersburg State University) where he would study law and write a thesis entitled “The Most Favored Nation Trading Principle in International Law”. Before graduating in 1975, like his fellow students, Putin was required to join the Communist Party.

However, unlike most of his colleagues, he would hold a very low opinion of the party, calling it “a beautiful and harmful fairy tale.” before leaving the party and denouncing communism in 1991.

Although his affiliations to the Russian system were severely tested in his time at the Leningrad State University, this would also be the institution where he would meet an assistant professor who would help shape and nourish Putin’s burgeoning political ambitions, Anatoly Sobchak.

Sobchak would not only be a key component to Putin’s political success but he would also go on to co-author the Constitution of the Russian Federation and serve as the first democratically-elected mayor of St. Petersburg.

  1. Putin was / is no choir boy. He now lives in a billion dollar palace with lavish gardens and secluded acreage. He leaves a trail of executed enemies and I would wager unlike the cowardly Clintons, he didn’t hire someone to do his dirty work. My guess is he has acquired much of his wealth from stealing. He is / was a thief, murderer and bully.

    That being said, he now promotes family, Christianity, a sovereign Russia. He loves his country.

    Russian military soldiers are encouraged to be heterosexual not homosexual like here in America. No red high heel marches for Russian troop and none of this insane transgender nonsense.

    Say what you will about Putin, but he always comes across with dignity and decorum unlike our womanizer Clinton, blustering big mouth Trump, queer, gay Obama, drunk at the podium Piglosi or senile pedophile Biden.

    Russia at the moment can be proud, they at least have a leader that acts like a leader. He’s not perfect but Vladimir Putin is a hell of a lot better than the traitors in DC that have sold our country out and are for the most part all sexual perverts, drunkards and cocaine addicts.

    I saw a picture of Putin as a young boy sitting on his mother’s lap. They are both rail thin and looked to be real Russian peasants. Vladimir Putin started out dirt poor. He had initiative, drive, focus and despite all the odds against him is now where he is at.
