Pulin the PM for Russia is a Judo Black Belt who has recently released a DVD. No, I’m not fucking with you today. Yes, he did.
Putin was head of the KGB and was stationed in Germany. Part of the KGB training was to have perfect accents so their agents could blend in and not be noticed where they were stationed. Almost like in the movie with Chevy Chase and Dan Akyrold, Spies Like Us.
