He is the son of Maria Ivanovna (Shelomova) and Vladimir Spiridonovich Putin. They came from the Kalininsky area of the Tver region. He has two children with his former wife, Lyudmila Putina.

Some researchers speculate that Putin’s ancestry might be linked to the Putyanin clan, “one of the oldest clans” in Russian history, with links to all the royal families of Europe.

Putin holds dans in Judo and Kyokushin Karate. He started raining the Russian martial art of Sambo at the age of fourteen, and continued his training with Judo, reaching his black belt.

President Putin’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to Nikita Putin, who was born c. 1610-1629.

President Putin’s great-grandfather Ivan was the son of Ivan Artemyevich Chursanov and Anastasiya Yevgrafovna Kulakova. Yulia was the daughter of Timofey Yefimovich Fomin and Marina Yefimovna Seropegova.

President Putin’s maternal grandfather was Ivan Andreevich Shelomov (the son of Andrey Alekseyevich Shelomov and Anastasiya Mikhaylovna Shelomova). President Putin’s great-grandfather Andrey was the son of Aleksey Nikiforovich Skovorodnikov and Domna Stepanovna. Anastasiya was the daughter of Mikhail Fedorovich Shelomov and Anisya Petrovna.

Manila, I thought you were Afrikaner based on the detailed ancestry you gave of Afrikaners? How do you know Russian genealogy? Are you a Russian/Afrikaner mix?!

bablah November 1, 2017 at 12:20 pm

I’m 99.9% sure Manila is Filipino.

ashash November 2, 2017 at 6:03 am

Oh, it’s odd how he/she knows so much about Afrikaners and Russians then.

andrew November 2, 2017 at 10:32 am

No, he/she’s Norwegian. Most of us here are Scandinavian (counting Finland as part of the region). No secret.

Give me Mexican or Turkish.

madman August 16, 2016 at 11:47 pm

Turkish doesn’t seem very unlikely, given that he looks very Turkish. He would fit nicely in Turkey, as would Ian Nelson and Patricia Arquette.

follers August 17, 2016 at 12:58 am

I’m hearing that his grandfather was Mexican, possibly even Spanish.

madman August 17, 2016 at 2:24 am

It wouldn’t surprise me. Especially Russian Jews have a lot of Native American ancestry. Many Cherokee Indian settlers in Russia converted to Judaism.

bearboy August 16, 2016 at 3:35 pm

Vladimir Putin’s maternal grandfather wasn’t Jewish.

Jello April 29, 2015 at 4:29 pm

Russians are very white. He is simply a Northerner which are all white with really pale skin.

lelo4 August 16, 2016 at 5:51 pm

Well they are a mix of Slavic, Finnic and Baltic people. Basically the whitest populations in Europe, with almost no Mediterranean genes.

lelo4 August 16, 2016 at 5:53 pm

And keep in mind Scandinavians and Germanics in general have quite a lot Med in them.

ann April 29, 2015 at 3:38 am

His maternal grandparents were Ivan Andreevich Shelomov and Elizaveta Alekseevna Buyanova.
You can trace his lineage to Nikita Putin, who was born between 1610 – 1629.

He’s Finno- Ugric, I’ve heard.

lelo4 August 16, 2016 at 5:44 pm

Yes, he’s Finnic. Northern Russians are related to Finns and Estonians.
