Presentation of the book "The Putin's Kin" written by Alexander Putin took place the other day. Alexander is a distant relative to the Russian president. The presentation took place in the Russian city of Tver, the ancestoral home of the president’s family. The book is the result of extensive contributions of Tver Archive scientists.

Fadei Putin was the founder of the old peasant kin. He was first mentioned in the records together with his sons in 1719. Vladimir Putin and the book's author Alexander Putin have a common great-grandfather.

Alexander Putin says he planned to write a book about his family long ago, even before Vladimir Putin was elected president of Russia. He concluded an agreement with the All-Russian Genealogy Association in 1992 which made his work on the book easier. Workers of the Tver Regional Archives contributed greatly to the book as well.

An exhibition dedicated to the President Putin’s 50th birthday was opened in the Russian city of Tyumen. The exposition called “My Life as Spread Before the Eyes” was opened in the Tyumen Regional Scientific Library. Organizers of the exhibition say, visitors can see books, articles from newspapers and magazines about the life of the president.

Materials of the exhibition characterize the Russian president the following way: “He is an intellectual with perfect logic which helps him in the most difficult situations. Family, traditions and native land are his main values. A master of sports in judo and unarmed self-defense. Despite apparent adherence to Western culture, Putin has all the main features of the Russian national character.” Yelena Kiseleva PRAVDA.Ru
