Media News: Modern propaganda has many masters. Who can forget George Bush on an aircraft carrier proclaiming the end of a war that still had a decade to go? Or Tony Blair playing football with his head? Or Kim Jong-il visiting Specsavers in Norwich?

When it comes to international public relations, however, there is no one more adept at public relations than former President, now Prime Minister, as well as decorated Judo champion and member of the Russian Hell’s Angels, Vladimir Putin.

In this gallery of PR shots, taken from state visits to other countries as well as personal appearances on home soil, we see the complex and intermingling dynamics of his leadership, the subtle shadings of thought and approach that characterises how Putin shows himself to the world.

If anyone sought to wonder ‘who is this guy’? What makes him tick? What are his core values? What does he care about most in this bleak world of ours? Then this gallery has the answer: Vladimir Putin – a man for all seasons.
