“Whoever does not miss the Soviet Union has no heart. Whoever wants it back has no brain.”
Vladimir Putin — President of Russia
Vladimir Putin is certainly a tough and uncompromising President but he also can be quite funny when he wants to be. Did you know that Vladimir Putin’s calendar outsells all rivals in Japan? According to media reports, people buying the calendars, including a large number of women, are drawn to Putin’s unconventional style and unashamed machismo. And then, of course, Putin is judo master. In 2012, Putin was awarded 8th dan of the black belt, the first Russian to join a handful of judo fighters in the world who have achieved this status.

In 1975, Putin joined the KGB and trained at the 401st KGB school in Okhta, Leningrad.
After training, he worked in the Second Chief Directorate (counter-intelligence), before he was transferred to the First Chief Directorate, where he monitored foreigners and consular officials in Leningrad.
In September 1984, Putin was sent to Moscow for further training at the Yuri Andropov Red Banner Institute.
From 1985 to 1990, he served in Dresden, East Germany, using a cover identity as a translator.
Masha Gessen, a Russian-American who has authored a biography about Putin claims that
“Putin and his colleagues were reduced mainly to collecting press clippings, thus contributing to the mountains of useless information produced by the KGB.”
And this information may explain the joke…
Humour — Putin tells a KGB joke. A bit dark but funny.
