Biography of Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin is a former KGB agent and Russian politician. People have already come to regard Putin as a politician who is not afraid to challenge anyone.

He is dubbed a worldwide political superhero, holds a black belt in martial arts and judo, enjoys horseback riding, hunts lions, and is the star of a film he wrote.

On October 7, 1952, he was born in Leningrad.. (currently known as St. Petersburg). He was the youngest of three brothers, and both of his brothers died before he was born. His first brother, Alwar, died as an infant, and his second brother, Viktor, died of Diptheria.

Putin’s mother worked at a factory, while his father served in the Soviet Navy, though he was also heavily involved in the Secret Service and was a former KGB agent. He began practicing judo at the age of 12 and spent his leisure time reading literature by Marx, Engels, and Lenin.

Putin graduated from Saint Petersburg High School 281 and studied German. He entered Saint Petersburg State University to study law in 1970 and graduated in 1974.

He was heavily motivated by his father, thus he joined the KGB after graduating in 1975 and was trained at the 401st KGB school in Okhta, Leningrad. At the time, the globe was divided into two parts: the Eastern Bloc, led by the Soviet Union, and the Western Bloc, led by America and Western countries, and the cold war was still in effect.

The Berlin Wall was a Cold War flashpoint between the Soviet Union and the United States, dividing the city of Berlin into two halves. Putin’s first posting was here, and it was quite dangerous. He had spied for the Soviet Union in numerous countries in East Germany, where he had learned to speak German well.

Protests against the communist regime in East Germany began in 1989, and because the Soviet Union led this communist bloc, people began a violent struggle against the Soviet Union and the KGB. During this time, a Berlin office was encircled by people because certain Soviet diplomats and KGB agents were now unarmed in this office, and this mob planned to murder all of them.

Putin was present among the KGB agents, who sought assistance from the Defense Command at the time but received no assistance from Moscow, leaving Putin disappointed. Putin then came out and told the violent crowd that he had dangerous weapons and that if the protesters did not leave, he and his people would use dangerous weapons.

Putin’s strategy worked, and the angry crowd dispersed, despite the fact that Putin and his followers possessed no serious weapons at the moment.

1991 is significant for both Putin and the Soviet Union since the Soviet Union split that year, and Putin retired from the KGB with the rank of lieutenant colonel.
