The favorite musical group of Vladimir Putin is the group "Lubeh". Vladimir Putin freely converses in German and is also quite good in English. He wears a watch only on his right hand. He prefers watches by the brand "Patek Philippe". Ideology: In an interview with Larry King, host of the television channel CNN on September 8, 2000, to the question: Do you believe there is a higher power? Putin replied: "I believe in human beings. I believe in his good intentions. I believe in the fact that all of us have come to this world to do good ". Putin regularly met the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II (from December 31, 1999 - day, when Boris Yeltsin handed the presidency to Putin), participates in religious services and visits various Orthodox churches and monasteries during trips around the country. According to Putin, "and traditional confessions of Russia and the nuclear shield are the components, that strengthen the Russian statehood and create the necessary preconditions for internal and external security". In the early 2000s, a version circulated in Russian media that a confessor of Putin - Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov), was an active participant in the process of unification of ROCOR and Russian Orthodox Church of Moscow Patriarchate. Personal wealth: According to official data, released during the Duma elections in 2007, Putin's revenues in 2006 amounted to 2 million rubles. But, at the time of the elections, Putin had 3.7 million rubles in accounts at various banks, a site with an area of 1500 sq.m in the Moscow region and an apartment in St. Petersburg with an area of 78 sq.m According to the director of National Strategy Institute, S.

"In an interview with "The Guardian" newspaper in December 2007, S. Belkovsky said that Putin does not figure in any official list of shareholders but may be a beneficiary of these shares through intermediaries. In February 2008, Putin replied to a question about his wealth, that he is "the richest man in Europe and perhaps in the world," but his wealth is of a non-material nature: "he is rich, because he collects the emotions" and also because, "the Russian people twice entrusted me with the leadership of a great country like Russia"; on statements about his multi-billion dollar wealth, Putin said that "they picked this in their noses and have smeared this across their pieces of paper ". In February 2009, former deputy secretary of Russia's Security Council (1996 - 1997), Boris A. Berezovsky stated that he is "convinced that the personal wealth of Vladimir Putin is certainly not less than the wealth of Roman Abramovich". Honors: V. V.

Media was skeptical about all this, although diving along with Putin, head of Phanagoria expedition, head of Department of Classical Archaeology RAS IA, Kuznetsov V.D, confirmed that the amphorae have not been planted and have not been presented to Putin. Kuznetsov said: "During the season we find thousands of different fragments of amphorae, dozens of them - large fragments. In principle, any scuba diver, going deep down to the bottom, can quite easily find fragments of amphorae .... we do not give them to anyone, entire things are kept with us, we work with them and study them. Later, they are handed-over to the museums.
