Details of Putin’s early life can be hard to find, in part because of his obscure background and his time in the KGB; thus, much of what is known of his earlier days comes from him and his friends of that time.
One such friend Masha Gessen has said: “If anyone ever insulted him in any way, Volodya would immediately jump on the guy, scratch him, bite him, rip his hair out in clumps — do
anything at all to never allow anyone to humiliate him in any way.”
