Vladimir Putin’s Personal Information
Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is a Russian politician and former intelligence officer who has been serving as the president of Russia since 2012 and previously between 2000 and 2008.
Vladimir Putin also served as the prime minister of Russia from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2012.
Putin worked as a KGB foreign intelligence officer for 16 years, rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel, before resigning in 1991 to begin a political career in Saint Petersburg.
Vladimir Putin moved to Moscow in 1996 to join the administration of President Boris Yeltsin.
Vladimir Putin briefly served as director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and secretary of the Security Council, before being appointed as prime minister in August 1999.
After the resignation of Yeltsin, Putin became acting president and, less than four months later, was elected outright to his first term as president.
He was reelected in 2004.
As he was constitutionally limited to two consecutive terms as president at the time, Putin served as prime minister again from 2008 to 2012 under Dmitry Medvedev.
He returned to the presidency in 2012 in an election marred by allegations of fraud and protests and was reelected in 2018.
In April 2021, following a referendum, he signed into law constitutional amendments including one that would allow him to run for reelection twice more, potentially extending his presidency to 2036.
During his first tenure as president, the Russian economy grew on average by seven percent per year, following economic reforms and a fivefold increase in the price of oil and gas.
He also led Russia during a war against Chechen separatists, reestablishing federal control of the region.
As prime minister under Medvedev, he oversaw military reform and police reform, as well as Russia’s victory in its war against Georgia.
During his third term as president, Russia annexed Crimea and sponsored war in eastern Ukraine with several military incursions made, resulting in international sanctions and a financial crisis in Russia.
Vladimir Putin also ordered a military intervention in Syria against rebel and jihadist groups.
During his fourth term as president, he presided over a military buildup on the border of Ukraine.
Putin accused the Ukrainian government of committing atrocities against its Russian-speaking minority, and in February 2022, he ordered a full-scale invasion of the country, resulting in numerous atrocities and leading to widespread international condemnation, as well as expanded sanctions and calls for Putin to be pursued with war crime charges.
Under Putin’s leadership, Russia has experienced democratic backsliding and a shift to authoritarianism.
Putin’s rule has been characterized by endemic corruption, the jailing and repression of political opponents, the intimidation and suppression of independent media in Russia, and a lack of free and fair elections.
Putin’s Russia has scored poorly on Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index, the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Democracy Index, and Freedom House’s Freedom in the World index. Putin is the second-longest currently serving European president after Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus.
Putin was born on 7 October 1952 in Leningrad, Soviet Union (now Saint Petersburg, Russia), the youngest of three children of Vladimir Spiridonovich Putin (1911–1999) and Maria Ivanovna Putina.
Vladimir Putin’s grandfather, Spiridon Putin, was a personal cook to Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin.
Putin’s birth was preceded by the deaths of two brothers: Albert, born in the 1930s, died in infancy, and Viktor, born in 1940, died of diphtheria and starvation in 1942 during the Siege of Leningrad by Nazi Germany’s forces in World War II.
Putin’s mother was a factory worker and his father was a conscript in the Soviet Navy, serving in the submarine fleet in the early 1930s.
Early in World War II, his father served in the destruction battalion of the NKVD.
Later, he was transferred to the regular army and was severely wounded in 1942.
Putin’s maternal grandmother was killed by the German occupiers of the Tver region in 1941, and his maternal uncles disappeared on the Eastern Front during World War II.
On 1 September 1960, Putin started at School No. 193 at Baskov Lane, near his home.
Vladimir Putin was one of a few in the class of approximately 45 pupils who were not yet members of the Young Pioneer organization.
At age 12, he began to practice sambo and judo. In his free time, he enjoyed reading the works of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, and Lenin.
Vladimir Putin studied German at Saint Petersburg High School 281 and speaks German as a second language.
Following the pro-western Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine in 2014, Putin seized eastern regions of the nation and annexed Crimea.
In July 2021, Putin published an essay titled On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians, in which he states that Belarusians, Ukrainians, and Russians should be in one All-Russian nation as a part of the Russian world and are ‘one people’ whom ‘forces that have always sought to undermine our unity’ wanted to ‘divide and rule’.
The essay denies the existence of Ukraine as an independent nation.
In September 2021, Ukraine conducted military exercises with NATO forces.
The Kremlin warned that NATO expanding military infrastructure in Ukraine would cross ‘red lines’ for Putin. Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied allegations that Russia was preparing for a possible invasion of Ukraine.
On 30 November, Putin stated that an enlargement of NATO in Ukraine, especially the deployment of any long-range ballistic missiles capable of striking Russian cities or U.S. national missile defense systems similar to those in Romania and Poland, would be a ‘red line issue for the Kremlin.
Vladimir Putin asked President Joe Biden for legal guarantees that NATO would not expand eastward or put ‘weapons systems that threaten us in close vicinity to Russian territory.
The U.S. and NATO have rejected Putin’s demands.
The Kremlin repeatedly denied that it had any plans to invade Ukraine.
Vladimir Putin dismissed such fears as ‘alarmist.
In December 2021, a Levada Center poll found that about 50% of Russians believed the U.S. and NATO are to blame for the Russo-Ukrainian crisis, while 16% blamed Ukraine, and 4% blamed Russia.
On 7 February 2022, retired Russian Colonel-General Leonid Ivashov, who is active in politics as the chairman of the All-Russian Officers Assembly, publicly called for Putin to resign over threats of a ‘criminal’ invasion of Ukraine.
We will do everything to find compromises that suit everyone.’
Vladimir Putin promised not to carry out new military initiatives near Ukraine.
On 21 February, Putin signed a decree recognizing the two self-proclaimed separatist republics in Donbas as independent states and addressed the nation on this solemn occasion.
On 21 February Putin spoke of the ‘historic, strategic mistakes that were made when in 1991 the USSR ‘granted sovereignty’ to other Soviet republics on ‘historically Russian land’ and called the entire episode ‘truly fatal.
Vladimir Putin described Ukraine as being turned into the ‘anti-Russia’ by the West.
On 22 February, Putin televised a meeting of the Security Council of Russia over the annexation, during which the chief of the SVR,
Sergey Naryshkin was seen visibly tremble while he ‘stutter uncomfortably’ as Putin humiliated him publicly for ‘fumbling’ in his response to the Russian President’s questioning.
On 23 February, Putin in a televised address announced a ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine, launching a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Citing a purpose of ‘denazification. he said the purpose of the ‘operation’ was to ‘protect the people in the predominantly Russian-speaking region of Donbas who, according to Putin, ‘for eight years now, have been facing humiliation and genocide perpetrated by the Kyiv regime.
Vladimir Putin said that ‘all responsibility for possible bloodshed will be entirely on the conscience of the regime ruling on the territory of Ukraine.
In his speech, Putin said he had no plans to occupy Ukrainian territory, adding: ‘We are not going to impose anything on anyone by force.
On 24 February, he launched a war to gain control of the remainder of the country and overthrow the elected government under the pretext that it was run by ‘Nazis.
Vladimir Putin’s invasion was met with international condemnation.
International sanctions were widely imposed against Russia, including against Putin personally.
Following an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council on 24 February, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said ‘President Putin, in the name of humanity, brings your troops back to Russia.’
The invasion led to numerous calls for Putin to be pursued with war crime charges.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson suggested Putin could face war crimes charges and said that the UK and its allies are working to set up a ‘particular international war crimes tribunal for those involved in war crimes in the Ukraine theatre.
President Joe Biden said that believes Putin ‘meets the legal definition’ of being a war criminal.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) stated that it would investigate the possibility of war crimes in Ukraine in late 2013.
The United States has pledged to help the ICC to prosecute Putin and others for war crimes committed during the invasion of Ukraine.
From Africa, Kenya expressed opposition to Putin’s actions and the idea of using force to change borders left behind by collapsing colonial empires.
On 3 March, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted to condemn Russia for the invasion and demanded the withdrawal of Putin’s forces.
The Resolution ES-11/1 was passed by 141 votes to five (with 35 abstentions).
Vladimir Putin’s allies China and India abstained.
International reactions to the invasion have given Russia a pariah status, facing increasing international isolation.
In response to what Putin called ‘aggressive statements’ by the West, he put the Strategic Rocket Forces’ nuclear deterrence units on high alert. U.S. intelligence agencies determined that Putin was ‘frustrated’ by slow progress due to the unexpectedly strong Ukrainian defense, ‘directing unusual bursts of anger at his inner circle.
On 4 March, Putin signed into law a bill introducing prison sentences of up to 15 years for those who publish ‘knowingly false information about the Russian military and its operations, leading some media outlets in Russia to stop reporting on Ukraine.
On 7 March, as a condition for ending the invasion, the Kremlin demanded Ukraine’s neutrality, recognition of Crimea as Russian territory, and recognition of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk as independent states.
On 16 March, Putin issued a warning to Russian ‘traitors’ who he said the West wanted to use as a ‘fifth column’ to destroy Russia.
He said that Russians should undergo ‘natural and necessary self-cleansing of society’ to rid themselves of ‘bastards’ and pro-Western ‘traitors.
On 24 March, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution drafted by Ukraine and its allies which criticized Russia for creating a ‘dire’ humanitarian situation and demanded aid access as well as the protection of civilians in Ukraine.
140 member states voted in favor, 38 abstained, and five voted against the resolution.
As early as 25 March, credible reports were published by the UN Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights that Putin ordered a kidnapping policy whereby Ukrainian nationals who did not cooperate with the Russian takeover of their homeland were victimized by FSB agents.
The Ukrainian government reported that 400,000 citizens have been forcibly taken to Russia where ‘some could be sent as far as the Pacific Ocean island of Sakhalin and are being offered jobs on condition they don’t leave for two years, while ‘the Kremlin’ in the person of Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev said the relocated people wanted to go to Russia.
The Mayor of the besieged city of Mariupol compared the kidnappings to the actions of Nazi Germany during World War II.
On 28 March, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he was ‘99.9 percent sure’ that Putin thought the Ukrainians would welcome the invading forces with ‘flowers and smiles’ while he opened the door to negotiations on the offer that Ukraine would henceforth be a non-aligned state.
The U.S and European Union officials believe that Putin has been misinformed by his advisers about the Russian military’s performance in Ukraine and the effect of sanctions on Russia.
On 11 April, The Times of London reported that Putin had purged 150 FSB careerists for misinforming him over the invasion, including Fifth Service chief Sergey Beseda and his deputy.
On 27 April, Putin warned that any countries who ‘create a strategic threat to Russia’ during the war can expect ‘retaliatory strikes’ that would be ‘lightning-fast’ On 14 May, Putin warned Finland that joining NATO would be a ‘mistake.
According to the US Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, Putin could potentially turn to nuclear weapons if he perceived an ‘existential threat’ to the Russian state or regime.
He could regard a possible defeat in Ukraine as an existential threat to his regime.
On 16 May, Putin hosted a CSTO meeting under the glare of the cameras.
He failed to convince his fellow leaders that ‘neo-Nazism has long been rampant in Ukraine’ or materially support his actions there.
Putin has repeatedly blamed the West and sanctions on Russia for the emerging global energy and food crises.
He denied accusations that his armed forces are blocking Ukrainian grain exports from the Black Sea.
On 9 June, on the 350th anniversary of the birth of Peter the Great, Putin described the land that had been conquered by Peter in the Great Northern War against Sweden as land being returned to Russia.
He stated that when Saint Petersburg was founded on the conquered land, no other countries in Europe recognized it as Russian.
Vladimir Putin also compared the task facing Russia today to that of Peter’s, without explicitly mentioning Ukraine.
