Vladimir Putin, the Russian strongman who has taken the world to the brink of a third World War, also seems off in his private life. A new piece of info has surfaced on the Internet as Netizens have noticed Putin's ex-wife Lyudmila Shkrebneva’s words about the autocrat's odd wedding proposal. 

Vladimir Putin married Lyudmila Shkrebneva in 1983 and they had two children together before divorcing in 2013. While the Russian President prefers to keep his personal life secret, his biography ‘First Person: An Astonishingly Frank Self-Portrait by Russia's President’ has revealed that Vladimir is an oddball. Published in 2000, the book consists of interviews with some of the people closest to Putin. In one of the interviews, his now-ex-wife opened up about his bizarre wedding proposal.

Apparently, Lyudmila disliked the thought of dating a “poorly-dressed” Vladimir. However, things took a turn when he gave her his phone number. After 3 and a half years of dating, Vladimir proposed in a very awkward way that made Lyudmila think he was going to dump her. Lyudmila told the interviewer, “One night we were sitting in this house and he said, You know what kind of person I am by now. In general, I'm not very easygoing.' He was being self-critical. He explained that he was the silent type; that he was rather abrupt in some things and he could even insult people, and so on."

Lyudmila added, “He was saying that he was a risky life partner. And he added, 'In three and a half years, you have probably made up your mind.' It sounded to me like we were breaking up. 'Yes, I've made up my mind,' I said. He let out a doubtful, 'Yes?'". Until this point, Lyudmila was under the impression that he was breaking up with her. As soon as Lyudmila said yes, believing she was being dumped, Vladimir said, “Well then if that is the way it is, I love you and propose we get married.” Lyudmila added that this response from her future husband took her by surprise.
