The reality behind Putin’s time in the KGB — ‘he was no James Bond!’

Experts have outlined how Vladimir Putin’s time as a KGB officer was far from what he described, working in the ‘backwater’ of Germany before the fall of the Soviet Union.

It is well documented that Russian President Vladimir Putin spent more than 15 years serving in the Soviet Union’s intelligence service. His time as part of the KGB has long been credited with how he is able to masterfully manipulate those he meets.
