    Wasn t exactly what I had thought it would be about, but it was an interesting read I wish it had focusedon Putin himself, instead of the people in the FSB and commoners Surkov was the only staff from Putin s administration that it really mentioned in depth I did enjoy the insight into Putin s personality, I liked how they described the scenes of seeing Putin in person, and Putin s reactions to different events The last sentence made me snort, The Russian is in many ways rather alone, Wasn t exactly what I had thought it would...

    Lucrarea este interesanta nu atat pentru efortul de a contura portretul conducatorului rus, cat mai ales pentru felul in care personalitatea lui Putin se desprinde din afacerile, intamplarile si evenimentele, cele mai multe mustind de coruptie, ale ultimilor 15 ani.
