Boss Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has been the President of Russia since 7 May 2012, a job he had from 2000 to 2008, and as Prime Minister from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2012. During his last term as Prime Minister, he was also the Chairman of the United Russia political party. Before becoming Prime Minister, he was head of the FSB during the 1999 Russian Apartment bombings, an event which some have suggested he had a hand in.[citation needed]

Career

For 16 years Putin served as an officer in the KGB, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before he moved into politics, in his native Saint Petersburg in 1991. He moved to Moscow in 1996 and joined President Boris Yeltsin's administration where he rose quickly, becoming Acting President on 31 December 1999 when Yeltsin resigned unexpectedly. Putin won the subsequent 2000 presidential election and was re-elected in 2004. Because of constitutionally mandated term limits, Putin was ineligible to run for a third consecutive presidential term in 2008. Dmitry Medvedev won the 2008 presidential election and appointed Putin as Prime Minister beginning a period of so-called "tandemocracy".[1] In September 2011, following a change in the law extending the presidential term from four years to six,[2] Putin announced that he would seek a third, non-consecutive term as President in the 2012 presidential election, an announcement which led to protests in many Russian cities. He won the election in March 2012 and is now serving a six-year term.[3][4]

9/11 Denial

In 2011, at the Seliger 2011 youth forum, Putin replied to an audience question that "This is complete nonsense, it is impossible... To imagine that US intelligence services did it deliberately, with their own hands, is complete nonsense... Only people who do not understand the workings of security agencies can say that. It would be impossible to conceal it.”[5]

MH17

In August 2014, Professor Cees Hamelink wrote to Putin apologising on behalf of the Netherlands government and media for the way "the facts concerning MH17, Syria and Ukraine are twisted to defame you and your country."[6][7]

Litvinenko

Full article: Alexander Litvinenko#Public Inquiry

On 21 January 2016, a long-awaited UK report into the death of ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko [8] found two Russian men - Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun - deliberately poisoned 44-year-old Litvinenko in London in 2006 by putting the radioactive substance polonium-210 into his drink. It suggested this was probably done on the orders of the FSB with the knowledge and approval of the Russian President.[9]

Skripal

On 27 September 2018, Labour Party Deputy Leader Tom Watson claimed that the chemical attack in Salisbury was "ordered personally" by Vladimir Putin. Watson said fresh proof that one of the men accused by the UK of carrying it out is a Russian military officer showed that it was authorised by the Kremlin.

According to the investigative website Bellingcat, Ruslan Boshirov's real name is Anatoliy Chepiga, a colonel who was personally given the 'Hero of the Russian Federation' award by President Putin in the past. Boshirov and his alleged accomplice Alexander Petrov have claimed they were in Salisbury as tourists shortly before former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were poisoned by the nerve agent Novichok.

Writing on his Facebook page, Tom Watson said:

"The revelation that one of the Skripal poisoning suspects is a highly-decorated Russian colonel - and not an innocent Cathedral spotter - is fresh proof that Britain is now at the sharp end of an assault ordered personally by Putin. Clearly we now need overhaul of national security strategy to protect our democracy from Putin's 'hybrid warfare'."

Watson also called on Theresa May to mount a probe similar to the Mueller investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 United States presidential election:

"We now need the FULL picture on Russian interference - from murder on the streets to meddling in votes. 'Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty’. That means it's time for eyes wide open. Our investigating authorities have done their job in identifying the Salisbury assassins, now we need a Mueller-style probe into Russian interference in our democracy."[10]
