I've posted about this here from time to time since I arrived on Pravda in 2001.
Here is another overview.
Putin's rise to power is very interesting.
Yeltsin had gone through a series of rapid fire hiring and firing of prime ministers when he appointed little known Putin as prime minister August 9, 1999. Then Yeltsin suddenly and unexpectedly resigned a few months later on Y2K eve and Putin became acting president at noon on Y2K eve.
Here's something for those interested in Nostradamus. One of Nostradamus' few prophecies where there is an actual date is his most famous prophecy [Century X-72] that is dated "Seventh month 1999" - July 1999 - when a king of terror arises and Mars [ie, war] reigns.
The year 1999, seventh month,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror
To bring back to life the great King of the Mongols,
Before and after Mars to reign by good luck.
Here's the kicker... Russia still uses the Julian calendar [which is 13 days behind the Western Gregorian calendar] for religious purposes and many important calendar events like Christmas [which is why their Christmas is our Gregorian January 7, which is their Julian December 25.] Yeltsin appointed Putin PM on Gregorian August 9, 1999... but on Russia's Julian calendar it was July 1999 when Putin first arose to power and the world stage... just as Nostradamus had predicted. Btw... Nostradamus also used the Julian calendar because in his time the Gregorian calendar did not exist yet.
