profane but enlightened
In 2006, Validimir Putin, President of Russia, walked the Kremlin grounds and spontaneously knelt to kiss young Nikita Konkin on the stomach, in full public view. Alexander Litvinenko wrote an expose of incident, “The Kremlin Pedophile.” Litvinenko suspected at the time behavior revealed Putin’s pedophilic tendencies. A case made Putin’s political career given special handling. The writer suggested, “the explanation may be found if we look carefully at the so-called ‘blank spots’ in Putin’s biography. After graduating from the Andropov Institute, which prepares officers for the KGB intelligence service, Putin was not accepted into the foreign intelligence. Instead, he was sent to a junior position in KGB Leningrad Directorate. This was a very unusual twist for a career of an Andropov Institute’s graduate with fluent German. Why did that happen with Putin? Because, shortly before his graduation, his bosses learned that Putin was a pedophile. So say some people who knew Putin as a student at the Institute. The Institute officials feared to report this to their own superiors, which would cause an unpleasant investigation. They decided it was easier just to avoid sending Putin abroad under some pretext. Such a solution is not unusual for the secret services.”
The story included here as a reminder pedophilia remains an institution among political elite, worldwide. It’s also to confront pervasive denial of problem. The present writer feels own failing to recognize this public behavior for what it was, dismissing it as a simple show of affection! Wow, I can’t believe, denial was so strong! Litvinenko died just four months after writing article, due to poisoning from a radioactive isotope.
