‘Rat Boy’ Putin is Four Million Men Short
“Rat Boy” was Putin’s recall of his childhood. The small and pale figure hunted rodents amid the dingy halls of his Leningrad home. There, he probably experienced for the first time the thrill of stealing from other people, preferably through someone else (a small kid would be beaten up if he was discovered to be behind the crimes).
Today, Putin is the wealthiest man on earth, according to a vivid new book called “The Killer In The Kremlin” by award-winning journalist John Sweeney.
