Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is the youngest of three children born to Vladimir Spiridonovich Putin (1911–1999) and Maria Ivanovna Putina (1911–1998) in Leningrad, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union (now Saint Petersburg, Russia).
Vladimir Putin’s grandpa, Spiridon Putin, worked as a personal cook for Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin. Putin’s birth was preceded by the deaths of two brothers born in the mid-1930s, Viktor and Albert.
During the Siege of Leningrad by Nazi Germany’s forces in World War II, Albert died in infancy and Viktor died of diphtheria.
President Vladimir Putin’s mother worked as a factory worker, while his father served as a conscript in the Soviet Navy during the early 1930s, serving in the submarine fleet.
