Vladimir Putin

He’s one of the most recognized people in the world and perhaps for all the wrong reasons.  Vladimir Putin rose through the ranks of the KGB during the Soviet era, and then quickly shot up the ladder of the Russian government to become its President.  He’s currently invading neighboring country, Ukraine, and the world seems to have had about enough of his crap.  Putin has never been cast as an angel, but with his record of humanitarian issues, corruption, and power-hungry decisions, he seems to be fitting the bill quite nicely as a devil.  What could have happened in his life to cause him to turn out the way he has?  What could be at the root of his desire to punish those who don’t see eye to eye with him?  We’ll dive into this and much more in this episode of AHC Podcast.
