Russian President Vladimir Putin said that when he decided to become a scout, he came to the reception of the KGB of the USSR to find out how to get there, and shared why he changed his mind about being a pilot.
“I just went to the reception room of the KGB of the USSR I did not have any connections from the street, I had a working family, where do I go? I went straight to the reception room,” he said at a meeting with class leaders of senior classes.
According to Putin, he was advised there to finish the university first and get a legal education.
“From that moment I stopped studying physics, chemistry, mathematics, I just stopped,” Putin said.
The head of state added that he eventually went to law school. “But before that I wanted to be a pilot, I went to the flying school, walked along the corridors, looked, then I realized how my life will develop,” he said, noting that he eventually realized that he would not be interested.
According to a biography on the president’s personal website, Vladimir Putin graduated from the Leningrad State University in 1975, then in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Moscow KGB Higher School No. 1. From 1985 to 1990, Putin worked in the GDR.
