Documents presented in the city of St. Petersburg, including the assessment of the Soviet intelligence service "KGB" of Russian President Vladimir Putin during his tenure in his ranks.
The central archive of historical and political documents in St. Petersburg declassified documents on top Russian officials, including an assessment by the KGB of the Russian State Security Committee (KGB) of Russian President Vladimir Putin during his tenure.
Putin has been on the KGB record since joining the Soviet Union in 1975 and was 23 years old.
According to the KGB assessment, Vladimir Putin "is characterized by his executive capabilities, discipline and integrity, and has been involved in skills improvement activities and always seeks to raise his profile."
The KGB reports describe Putin as having "moral cohesion", his influence among his colleagues, and in his spare time he practiced judo and sambo.
Copies of the KGB assessment documents of Putin and two other politicians, the former mayors of St. Petersburg, Valentina Matviyenko and Gregory Poltavchenko, were made available at the St. Petersburg Exhibition dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Central Archives.
