Other body measurements include a bodyweight of 82kg, Body fat-18% and muscle index of 4.7.
Aside from his height and blue eyes, the most striking facts about his personality are his authority, political career, and his tough personality.
Vladimir was born in Leningrad (present-day St. Petersburg), Russia, on October 7, 1952.
His mom Maria was a factory worker while his father was a wounded World War II veteran who worked as a laborer. Putin’s two older brothers Albert and Viktor died as children.
Growing up, Putin wasn’t particularly excited about academics; he was more interested in physical activities and combative sports.
At age 12 he became actively involved in boxing, judo, karate, and sambo, (a Soviet martial art).
With his involvement in combat, Vladimir became interested in espionage and spy activities and soon realized he needed to further his studies to stand any chance of getting into the KGB.
He enrolled to study Law at the Saint Petersburg State University in 1970 and graduated in 1975 upon which he joined the KGB.
Putin served 15 years as a foreign intelligence officer for the KGB, he was posted to Dresden in the then German Democratic Republic (East Germany) in 1985 and spent five years undercover.
While inactive spy service, he was lauded as an expert at reading and manipulating people and was seen as someone unfazed by violence.
When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, Putin’s undercover days were over, he resigned at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and returned to St. Petersburg State University where he worked closely with his former Professor and soon-to-be Mayor of St. Petersburg Anatoly Sobchak.
His first political appointment was as an advisor on international affairs to Mayor Sobchak. On 28 June 1991, Putin was made the head of the Committee for External Relations of the Saint Petersburg Mayor’s Office.
After Sobchak’s defeat in 1996, Putin headed for Moscow where he was appointed Deputy Chief of the Presidential Property Management Department.
Over a span of four years, he rose rapidly holding sensitive posts including deputy chief of Presidential Staff, Director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and First Deputy Prime Minister to President Boris Yeltsin.
In August 1999, President Boris Yeltsin fired Sergey Stepashin his prime minister along with his entire cabinet and appointed Putin as Prime Minister.
In December of the same year, an ailing Yeltsin resigned as president, appointing Putin acting president until official elections were held (in early 2000).
Putin was re-elected President in 2004.
Due to constitutional provisions that prohibited three successive terms as President, Putin couldn’t run for President in 2008.
However, he ensured his protégé Dmitry Medvedev succeeded him as president in March 2008.
Medvedev immediately appointed Putin as Russia’s prime minister, affording him political power until the next polls.
On the 4th of March, 2012, Vladimir Putin was re-elected to his third term as president.
In 1980, Putin met his future wife, Lyudmila, who was working as a flight attendant at the time. The couple married in 1983 and had two daughters: Maria, born in 1985, and Yekaterina, born in 1986.
In early June 2013, after nearly 30 years of marriage, Russia’s first couple announced that they were getting a divorce, providing little explanation for the decision, but assuring that they came to it mutually and amicably.
“There are people who just cannot put up with it,” Putin stated. “Lyudmila Alexandrovna has stood watch for eight, almost nine years.
“Providing more context to the decision, Lyudmila added, “Our marriage is over because we hardly ever see each other. Vladimir Vladimirovich is immersed in his work, our children have grown and are living their own lives.”
An Orthodox Christian, Putin is said to attend church services on important dates and holidays on a regular basis and has had a long history of encouraging the construction and restoration of thousands of churches in the region.
He generally aims to unify all faiths under the government’s authority and legally requires religious organizations to register with local officials for approval.
Through the practice of “crony capitalism,” Putin has amassed a net worth between $100 billion and $160 billion, according to Åslund’s estimates.
Crony capitalism is the political practice of a leader placing his “cronies” into powerful positions where they receive unfair advantages in business, according to The Business Dictionary.
In his own financial disclosures, he claims to subsist on $135,000 per year from his salary as Russia’s president, as well as from a military pension and some small investments.
