Vladimir Putin – The Polarizing Bear of Russia?

After his graduation in 1975, Putin would join the ranks of the powerful and much feared Soviet Union security agency, the KGB.

First training at the 401st KGB school in Okhta, Leningrad, he would soon serve as Second Chief Directorate of counterintelligence before being transferred to the First Chief Directorate where his job was to monitor foreigners and consular officials stationed in Leningrad.

In 1984, he was sent to the prestigious Yuri Andropov Red Banner Institute, the Soviet Union’s top espionage academy, where he would receive further training.

Between 1985 and 1990, using the cover as a translator, Putin was sent to Dresden in Soviet controlled East Germany where he would experience firsthand, the collapse of the system he was raised in.

As the fall of the Berlin wall began on November 9, 1989, it was reported that Putin feared that the KGB office would be stormed and he would suffer the wrath of the now free Germans, so he allegedly spent that time burning every KGB file he could.

His early connections to the KGB would live long in the memories of his future democratic opponents and give them cause to continue to be suspicious of Putin’s intentions, actions and decisions.

  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.
