Jewish roots of Russian president Vladimir Putin.
In the first addition of Putins book: First Person: An Astonishingly Frank Self-Portrait by Russia’s President it says his mothers maiden name was Shalomovitch – which apparently is a Jewish name. Yet in the second addition, it conveniently changes to Shelomova. A cover up?? http://www.amazon.com/dp/1586480189
Putin’s maternal grandfather was a Jew named Mordechai involved in the bolshevik revolution, his paternal grandfather worked all his life as the chef of Lenin and Stalin.
His paternal grandfather, Spiridon Ivanovich Putin (1879–1965), was employed at Vladimir Lenin‘s dacha at Gorki as a cook, and after Lenin’s death in 1924, he continued to work for Lenin’s wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya. He would later cook for Joseph Stalinwhen the Soviet leader visited one of his dachas in the Moscow region. Spiridon later was employed at a dacha belonging to the Moscow City Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, at which the young Putin would visit him.
His other grandfather was a jew from a Ukranian village and a bolshevik activist.
Putin traces his earliest connection to Judaism back to his early childhood in Leningrad, now St. Petersburg, when he befriended a Jewish family that lived in his apartment block. In his 2000 autobiography, Putin wrote that the unnamed family loved him and that he used to seek its company.
“They were observant Jews who did not work on Saturdays and the man would study the Bible and Talmud all day long,” Putin wrote. “Once I even asked him what he was muttering. He explained to me what this book was and I was immediately interested.” Can anyone believe that Jews let goyim read their holy books? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoJc7VoEmq0
Just look at Putin’s face and ears closely; he is no more a Christian than Benjamin Netanyahu. He is just another crypto Jew, having conveniently converted to Orthodox Christianity. How convenient. As the New Republic’s Julia Ioffe notes, a number of his closest confidants, as well as the Judo teacher who served as a mentor and surrogate father, are Jews. Moreover, Putin’s closest associate and prime-minister of Russia, Dmitriy Medvedev is also a Jew. Vladimir Putin is just another manipulative, greedy, demonic, billionaire, oligarch Jew – who is deceiving everyone in Russia.
Besides, Israel and its media were always friendly to Putin’s Russia, and completely ignored political position of US towards Russian president. During a March 4, 2014 news conference, Putin called the anti-Yanukovych protesters “reactionary, nationalist and anti-Semitic forces”, most Israel media used against Euromaidan protesters the same definitions. Putin has repeatedly cited the alleged anti-Semitism of Ukrainian nationalists in justifying Russia’s 2014 annexation of the Ukraine-controlled Crimea. In January, 2015, Putin inveighed against Ukrainian nationalists — he called them “Banderites,” a reference to the Ukrainian Nationalist and anti-Semite Stepan Bandera, which during WWII fight against soviet army — during a speech he delivered on International Holocaust Memorial Day, when he was Lazar’s guest at Moscow’s Jewish museum.
By contrast, hostile attitudes to Jews are prevalent in only 30 percent of the Russian population, according the Anti-Defamation League’s 2015 world index – less than in France (37 percent), Poland (45 percent) or Ukraine (almost 50 percent).
Putin was also the first Russian leader to visit Israel, where he attended an official reception. He also visited a Moscow synagogue, participated in candle-lighting ceremonies on Chanukah and reportedly had an open door for one of Russia’s two chief rabbis, Berel Lazar.
Under Putin, the Hasidic FJCR became increasingly influential within the Jewish community, partly due to the influence of Federation-supporting businessmen mediated through their alliances with Putin, notably Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich. According to the JTA, Putin is popular amongst the Russian Jewish community, who see him as a force for stability. Russia’s chief rabbi, Berel Lazar, said, Russia has in Vladimir Putin its “most pro-Jewish leader,” whom he credits with “fighting anti-Semitism more vigorously than any Russian leader before him.”
For Russia’s Jews, whose estimated numbers range from 500,000 to 1 million, Putin marked a departure from the anti-Semitism of past Communist elites and of the once all-powerful KGB, which he served for nearly two decades.
Treated as a punching bag by Communist rulers and waved off as a nuisance by Boris Yeltsin, the restitution-resistant president who replaced them, Russian Jewry has experienced a golden age under Putin. From the maritime border with Japan to the land border with Finland, dozens of synagogues in Russia have been returned to communities that, with help from Chabad rabbis, began to flourish and open hundreds of kindergartens, schools and Jewish community centers.
While human rights groups reported surges in xenophobic attacks at various times during Putin’s presidency, Jews rarely were the targets. Under Putin, harsh laws have led to a crackdown on ultranationalist groups that once had flourished in Russia. Hundreds, if not thousands of Russian nationalists and anti-Semites were sent to jails during his presidency.
Mikhail Chlenov, secretary general of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress, says Putin’s pro-Jewish tendencies are part of the reason that anti-Semitic incidents are relatively rare in Russia. In 2013, the Russian Jewish Congress documented only 10 anti-Jewish attacks and acts of vandalism, compared to dozens in France.
Few would dispute that Putin has been friendly to Jewish institutional life in Russia — especially to organizations and leaders that belong to the Chabad Hasidic movement.
Gorin, a Chabad rabbi and chairman of Moscow’s $50 million Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, credits Putin personally for providing state funding for the institution, which opened in 2012. Putin also donated a month’s wages to the museum.
“Putin has facilitated the opening of synagogues and Jewish community centers across Russia, at the Jewish community’s request. This has had a profound effect on Jewish life, especially outside Moscow,” Gorin said. “He instituted annual meetings with Jewish community leaders and attends community events. His friendship with the Jewish community has given it much prestige and set the tone for local leaders.”
Zvi Gitelman, a professor of Judaic studies at the University of Michigan who studies the relationship between ethnicity and politics in the former Soviet Union, said “Chabad, with the help of Putin, is now the dominant religious expression of Judaism in a mostly nonreligious population,” Gitelman said.
(JTA) — When even Russian policemen had to pass security checks to enter the Sochi Winter Olympics, Rabbi Berel Lazar was waved in without ever showing his ID.
During a March 4, 2014 news conference, Putin called the anti-Yanukovych protesters “reactionary, nationalist and anti-Semitic forces.” The Putin has repeatedly cited the alleged anti-Semitism of Ukrainian nationalists in justifying Russia’s 2014 annexation of the Ukraine-controlled Crimea. In January, 2015, Putin inveighed against Ukrainian nationalists — he called them “Banderites,” a reference to the Ukrainian Nationalist and anti-Semite Stepan Bandera (during WWII Bandera lead Ukrainian nationalist forces against Soviet Russia) — during a speech he delivered on International Holocaust Memorial Day, when he was Lazar’s guest at Moscow’s Jewish museum. Lazar has also been criticized for his presence at Kremlin events, like the one last year celebrating Russia’s Crimea annexation.
But Lazar and Putin’s relationship seems to go deeper than political expediency. In 2012, Lazar led the Russian leader on a tour of Jerusalem’s Western Wall. And last year Putin made Lazar a member of Russia’s prestigious Merit to the Fatherland order, the country’s highest civilian decoration and one that is rarely conferred on people who were not born in Russia. (Lazar became a Russian citizen in 2000.)
A boy, „Vova,“ from a very poor family in Soviet Union, in 2000 became an uncrowned Tsar of Russia (1/6 of Earth’s land), or rather the new global Shah of Oil and the richest man in the world. It is not wise to be too curious about how the rich got their fortune, but many Russians wonder why they are so poor? Why are they poorer than in the most difficult years of Soviet power, and why does Russia have so many orphans, as if in war? The Russian economy is in decline, and almost nothing is done. Everything is purchased from abroad, even military equipment, although the Soviet Union was a leading exporter. Russia has become a third world country, a raw materials appendage of the industrialized world.
Russia excels some African countries in terms of corruption – 154th place out of 178th. The Russian press mentioned that Vladimir Putin has secret savings of more than 40 billion dollars. People wonder how comrade Vladimir Putin could make a huge fortune and where he, a former Communist and KGB spy keeps his dollars? In the Kremlin?
From 2000, when Putin became a new President of Russia, the oil prices have risen considerably and Russian economy received more than 2 trillion dollars from oil and gas trade. Not a cent of this money has been invested into real Russian economy. Part of the oil money goes on imported goods and the rest vanished in the pockets jewish bosses who sit on the oil pipe. The eternal question is: „Who Lives Well in Russia?“ At different times, they were different people, but now everyone knows that life is only good for the super-rich oligarchs, mostly Jews.
