He was even attacked, it is said, by representatives of the Caucasus, not so long ago.
“This is non-public information.
“(It was an absolutely unsuccessful attempt, but it really happened… it was about two months ago.”
He added, “I repeat, this attempt was unsuccessful. There was no publicity about this event, but it took place.”
It is fair to say that Putin is probably the most hated person in the world and US Senator Lindsey Graham called on Russians to kill Putin.
The Senator said, “Is there a Brutus in Russia? Is there a more successful Colonel Stauffenberg in the Russian military?
“The only way this ends is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out. You would be doing your country and the world a great service.”
During a 2012 interview with
Filmmaker Oliver Stone interviewed the Russian dictator in 2012 for The Putin Interviews, where he detailed how he has cheated “five assassination attempts.”
Stone said, “Three times President. Five assassination attempts I’m told.
“Not as much as [Fidel] Castro, who I’ve interviewed.
“I think he must have had 50 but there’s a legitimate five [assassination attempts against Putin] I’ve heard about.”
Putin responded, “Yes, I talked to Castro about that and he said to me: ‘Do you know why I’m still alive?’
“I asked him, ‘Why?’ [Castro said] ‘Because I was always the one to deal with my security personally.’
“I do my job, and the security officers do theirs, and they are still performing quite successfully.”
Stone added, “You trust your security and they’ve done a great job?”
Putin asked Stone, “Do you know what they say among the Russian people?
“They say that ‘those that are destined to be hanged are not going to drown.’”
The Hollywood filmmaker asked Putin what he thought his fate could be, he said, “Only God knows our destiny.
“Yours and mine.
“One day [death] is going to happen to each and every one of us.
“The question is what we will have accomplished by then in this transient world and whether we will have enjoyed our life.”
