Poll: 1 in 5 Russian Women Would Marry Vladimir Putin

9. October 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

Though some Russian women have posed in lingerie for Putin’s birthday or penned a pop song in his honor, not every woman in Russia is enamored with the president. According to a recent poll, only 20% of Russian ladies said they’d marry Vladimir Putin if given the chance.

Conducted by the independent Levada polling center, the poll surveyed nearly 2,000 women across Russia. Six percent of the ladies surveyed said they would “definitely” marry Putin, while 14% said they “probably” would. Of those opposed, 43% said they “definitely would not” marry Putin should he extend an offer. Wealthy women and older women were among the least interested.

Putin, who turns 60 on Sunday, has worked hard to establish a rugged, manly reputation. His many stunts include posing without a shirt, piloting a fighter jet over Chechnya, shooting a tiger with a tranquilizer gun, and diving after treasure at the archaeological site of the ancient Greek colony of Phanagoria

Putin is married to Lyudmila Putina though he’s been linked to a number of other women, including Olympic gymnast Alina Kabaeva, who is said to have bourn his love child, and ex spy Anna Chapman.
