Putin at Desk

MOSCOW. June 22 (Interfax) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said he decided to become an intelligence officer back in his school years and even visited the KGB to ask for advice.

“I was a student of the Institute of Technology’s chemistry school but developed a different inclination and decided to join the security services. I came to a KGB reception office. I was born to an average family, which had no connections,” Putin said at a meeting with high school supervising teachers on Wednesday.

The president said he was received by “a nice guy, who took me seriously.” He told me that I should enroll in any higher education establishment, preferably, the faculty of law. “I stopped studying physics and chemistry from that moment,” Putin said.
