According to the Moscow Times (with some added clarifications), here’s what a typical day looks like for Vladimir Putin.
Putin rises about noon and starts the day with breakfast. He’ll either choose porridge or an omelet of quail’s eggs. Ingredients for his breakfast come from the Kirill farmland estate, notable because it is owned and operated by Russia’s patriarch and religious icon, the equivalent of the pope.
In other words, Russia’s pope is responsible for Putin’s breakfast. After all, it is the most important meal of the day.
When on trips overseas, the Kremlin approves all his meals before he eats. One can guess that Putin also courteously shares his food and coffee with the chief before eating. After finishing his meal, the president spends two hours of quiet time. According to his aides, this quiet time is where the leader does much of his thinking, as in: “Am I keeping with Stalin’s theory of poisoning people who don’t like me?” “Should I challenge Volodymyr Zelynskyy to a cage fight?” “When Biden called me a killer and a thug, was my ‘I know you are but what am I?’ a witty response?”
