Soon after graduating from law school, he entered government run intelligence agency ‘KGB’ (Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti). At the beginning of 1980s, he was trained at the ‘KGB School No. 1’, Moscow.
He worked for the ‘KGB’ agency’s Directorate Secretariat and then was employed at the Counterintelligence Division. He was again sent for training by ‘KGB’ to ‘Andropov Red Banner Institute’ to prepare him for his trip to Germany.
During the period 1985-90, he operated in the Dresden city of East Germany as an undercover agent. Vladimir’s hard work earned him the position of lieutenant colonel and eventually he became the senior assistant to the head of the department in the intelligence office.
In 1990, he travelled back to Leningrad and was appointed to the ‘Leningrad State University’ as the rector, in which capacity he handled international relations.
He chaired the ‘Committee for International Relations’ at St. Petersburg City Hall in 1991, and a few years later, also joined the St. Petersburg City Government as the Deputy Chairman. Soon after joining the City Hall, he resigned from his post at the ‘KGB’.
He shifted to Moscow in the year 1996, along with his family and there he was appointed to the ‘Presidential Property Management Directorate’ as the Deputy Chief. The following year, he joined office as the Presidential Executive Office as the Deputy Chief of Staff and also Chief of Main Control Directorate.
He became the First Deputy Chief of Staff of the Presidential Executive Office in 1998, and the same year, he joined office as the Director of the Federal Security Service. The following year, he became the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
He was chosen as the Prime Minister of Russia by the then President of Russia Boris Yeltsin in 1999. By the end of that year, the then President stepped down nominating Putin as his successor for the post.
In March 2000, he was elected to as the President of Russia and also served a second term after being re-elected to the office in 2004.
As per Russian constitution, he was ineligible to run for presidency for the third consecutive term. Hence, in 2008, Dmitry Medvedev ran for the office of the President and won the election. Medvedev appointed Putin as Prime Minister of Russia.
In 2011, the presidential term was extended from four years to six years. In 2012, Putin once again contested the presidential election and won by polling 64% of vote.
In 2018, he was re-elected for the fourth term as the President. He got 76% of votes and will be in office till 2024.

President of Russia: First and Second Terms

In December 1999, Boris Yeltsin resigned as president of Russia and appointed Putin acting president until official elections were held, and in March 2000, Putin was elected to his first term with 53 percent of the vote. Promising both political and economic reforms, Putin set about restructuring the government and launching criminal investigations into the business dealings of high-profile Russian citizens. He also continued Russia’s military campaign in Chechnya.

In September 2001, in response to the terrorist attacks on the United States, Putin announced Russia’s support for the United States in its anti-terror campaign. However, when the United States’ “war on terror” shifted focus to the ousting of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, Putin joined German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder and French President Jacques Chirac in opposition of the plan.

In 2004, Putin was re-elected to the presidency, and in April of the following year made a historic visit to Israel for talks with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon — marking the first visit to Israel by any Kremlin leader.

Due to constitutional term limits, Putin was prevented from running for the presidency in 2008. (That same year, presidential terms in Russia were extended from four to six years.) However, when his protégé Dmitry Medvedev succeeded him as president in March 2008, he immediately appointed Putin as Russia’s prime minister, allowing Putin to maintain a primary position of influence for the next four years.

Third Term as President

On March 4, 2012, Vladimir Putin was re-elected to his third term as president. After widespread protests and allegations of electoral fraud, he was inaugurated on May 7, 2012, and shortly after taking office appointed Medvedev as prime minister. Once more at the helm, Putin has continued to make controversial changes to Russia’s domestic affairs and foreign policy.

In December 2012, Putin signed into a law a ban on the U.S. adoption of Russian children. According to Putin, the legislation—which took effect on January 1, 2013 — aimed to make it easier for Russians to adopt native orphans. However, the adoption ban spurred international controversy, reportedly leaving nearly 50 Russian children — who were in the final phases of adoption with U.S. citizens at the time that Putin signed the law — in legal limbo.

Putin further strained relations with the United States the following year when he granted asylum to Edward Snowden, who is wanted by the United States for leaking classified information from the National Security Agency. In response to Putin’s actions, U.S. President Barack Obama canceled a planned meeting with Putin that August.

Around this time, Putin also upset many people with his new anti-gay laws. He made it illegal for gay couples to adopt in Russia and placed a ban on propagandizing “nontraditional” sexual relationships to minors. The legislation led to widespread international protest.

However, the couple announced a divorce in 2013 and within a year, the divorce was finalised.

A peak in Tian Shan Mountains has also been named after this politician as ‘Vladimir Putin Peak’.
