Putin's Rise to Power

It's not clear how Putin, a retired agent got a job at Kremlin. But once he got there he keeps getting promoted.

  • He goes from president's property management to the head of secret services.
  • He reforms the service and thus wins the respect of Boris Yeltsin. 
  • When the muslim Chechens revolt Putin becomes the face of the harsh Russian response.
  • Wanting to make sure he is not investigated Yeltsin nominates Putin as his successor on 1999's New years Eve TV presidential address.
  • Putin acts as president for 4 months, acting though on Chechenia and winning his election in a land-slide.
