Vladimir Putin grew up in the aftermath of World War II in 1945, when the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union came together to form the new world.
About Vladimir Putin
Seven years later, he was born in OCT 1952 at what was then Leningrad and is now Saint Petersburg. By the 1970s, Putin had studied law and then joined the russian secret service, the KGB. At the time, the soviet union’s influence reached across the communist nations of eastern europe, and in the 1980s, Putin was assigned to dresden in east germany as a spy, from where he witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the fall of communism.
This was a visceral example of people power to Putin, even though the demise of the Soviet Union.
When Vladimir Putin become President? How?
Boris Yeltsin, Russia’s president in the 1990s, would assist him in doing so by appointing Putin as head of the security services, after which he was elected prime minister, and after Yeltsin left in 1999, Putin became president, and his method of operation was clear from the outset.
Putin’s focus on his own power and wealth was relentless, and by 2008, when his two terms were up, dmitry medvedev replaced him as president, but putin became prime minister, and everyone knew who was in charge. By 2012, he was back as president again, and putin’s disregard for democracy is matched by his view of sovereignty.
Putin Game Plan
Russia invaded Georgia in 2008 to help separatists. Russia took Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, it supported separatists in eastern Ukraine, and a former Russian secret service employee was poisoned in Salisbury in 2018.
The UK says that russian intelligence was responsible for Putin making the restrictions, which he himself stated.
“I hope no one crosses Russia’s red line, but in each situation, we will decide where the red line is.”
Russia’s right to decide leads back to Putin’s vision of what he’s seen in his lifetime. In 2015, he addressed the United Nations and declared that “Instead of the triumph of democracy and progress, we’ve got violence, poverty, and social disaster”. “Nobody is concerned about human rights”.
When Putin spoke about his boyhood a few years ago, he said, “50 years ago, the Leningrad street taught me a law.”
“If a conflict is unavoidable, you must hit first”.
In response to the UN’s criticism of the West in 2015, Putin stated, “I merged ask those who created this scenario do you at least know now what you’ve done?”
The world is now expecting the same of him, and everything in Putin’s life suggests that he is aware of what he has done.
Putin’s disdain was directed at Western democracy, but we’ve seen how little he cares about democracy in Russia and Ukraine.
