If you really want to grab my attention, you just have to mention the name Vladimir Putin. Don’t know why, but I am kind of obsessed with this emotionless character. In one way I find Putin totally badass, but my grey matter keeps telling me that he’s also an authoritarian and a stubborn douche bag. If there’s someone I would like to meet in person and take a photo with, it would be this guy.
Not that I admire him, but he intrigues me. He can be one of the most hated man outside Russia and the most loved man in his country. Russians have a reputation for being crazy. Putin is no short of being called one. A long time president in the land of Vodka, I don’t know whether to love him or hate him. I fail to have an opinion for this guy.
Some facts about Putin:
He was a former KGB spy during the Soviet era.
Guy has a Black Belt in Judo and sure can kick your ass. He also plays ice hockey.
He is a big time dog lover and sometimes attends summits and conferences with dogs (maybe to scare people).
His personal life is secretive. He has two daughters probably in mid twenties, they study abroad but not even many in the Kremlin know what they look like.
He knows English very well, but does not like to speak. Always has a translator for interviews. He is fluent in German.
Apparently likes to listen to Beatles and Paul is his favourite.
He is an Orthodox Christian and is homophobic.
Putin’s grandpa was a chef in Stalin’s house.
Putin is in his sixties and 5’6’ tall. You can find macho images of him online doing crazy stuff.
Putin is a martial arts superhero in the comic book called ‘Superputin’
