Vladimir Putin – The Polarizing Bear of Russia?

This would spell the start of Putin’s political career as when Sobchak was elected as Mayor of St. Petersburg in 1991, Putin would join his team as an advisor up until Sobchak lost re-election in 1996.

Putin could have decided to work with Sobchak’s successor but that would go against his loyalty to his mentor, so instead, he made his way to Moscow and began working with the new Yeltsin Administration.

When Yeltsin became president of the new Russia, Putin would see his star quickly rise as he was appointed as Deputy Chief Administrator for the Kremlin and by 1999, he would be a key advisor to Yeltsin as he was named the Secretary of the Security Council, advising Yeltsin on foreign relations and intelligence.

Putin would hold several positions in the Yeltsin administration, firstly being appointed First Deputy Chief of Presidential Staff for regions, then as head of the commission for the preparation of agreements on the delimitation of power of regions and the federal center attached to the president, before becoming Director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), the successor of the now defunct KGB.

  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.
