In her last year book on Russian President Vladimir Putin, journalist Masha Gessen, wrote an exceptional description of this former KGB agent turned supreme leader of the Russian Federation over the last almost 15 years. She writes:

“Putin loved the Soviet Union, and he loved its KGB, and when he had power of his own, effectively running the financial system of the country’s second-largest city, he wanted to build a system just like them. It would be a closed system built on total control – especially control over the flow of information and the flow of money.”
