Vladimir Putin First Painting Raises $1.14 million for Charity


Putin’s first painting fetched 37 million rubles ($1.14 million) at a charity auction in his native St. Petersburg last night.

“The painting shows another aspect of a great personality,” said gallery owner Natalia Kournikova, the buyer of the piece.

She bought it because of its creator and will put it on display in her Kournikova gallery.
