According to the official biography of V.V. Putin, his parents, Maria Shelomova and Vladimir Spiridonovich Putin, met in the village of Pomininovo (50 km from Tver.), When both were 17 years old. Those. in 1928. An acquaintance had an accident: Putin’s father put out his mother’s eyes.
“Volodya [Putin's father] was very violent. When he was, some girl would be attracted to him at the dance, and let's beat the tap in front of her. The guys will observe, they will observe, and then they will come, they will take him by the collar - and out of the circle. He also liked to lift the skirt girls and tie them in a knot on their heads.
- Why did Vladimir and Maria get married? Was there any reason?
- There was a reason. Once, Maruska had a house-keeper [they called the days in the village when the girls were alone at home and could invite grooms to visit]. But Volodya did not come alone, but with friends. Maruska did not want to let them in, and they took the pitchfork, that they were standing near the fence, and began to break the gate. She was frightened, ran out of the house, flew up to the fence. And Volodya at this time forks broke through the gate and hit Maruska right in the face. In short, gouged out her eyes .... For the girl in those days it was a shame: who will marry the defective! Therefore, Marus'kina’s mother threatened Volodya: if you don’t marry, I will hand you over to court. So they got married! ”(From an interview with Anfisa Kormilitsyna, fellow villagers of Putin’s parents, Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper, 12/7/2002).
That is, Putin's dad came to woo the girl, none of the men was at home, broke the gate, almost killed a man, left the girl ugly. And she desperately married him. And he - not to sit down.
From the interview with Anfisa Kormilitsina, Putin’s fellow villagers in Pominovo:
“His parents were as illiterate as me. Yes, and even then I finished the accounting courses, but they - nothing. Volodya, the father of the president, did not even finish four classes, then he, however, became the party organization secretary at some factory. ”
Putin’s parents really were illiterate people: after moving to the city, his mother was a black job all her life — a cleaner, dishwasher, and his father worked in the private security of the car-building plant. For many years he was a janitor, then he learned to be a worker, was the secretary of the party committee of the carriage and body shop.
