Putin mentions lawyer as one of professions to his liking
MOSCOW. June 6 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said he could be a lawyer if he were not involved in politics.
Putin was asked in an interview with the China Media Group what his profession would be if he were not involved in politics.
"I worked in the intelligence service of the Soviet Union, in the foreign intelligence service of the Soviet Union. I already have a profession," Putin said laughing.
"But I graduated from St Petersburg State University with a degree in law, so I could have worked as a lawyer, but I worked all my life in security agencies and in foreign intelligence in the Soviet Union," Putin said.
"Then I worked in the executive authorities in St Petersburg. I enjoyed each of these activities. I think that I really could work as a lawyer," he said.
