Putin as he appears in Fighters of Lapis 5.

First appearance: Fighters of Lapis 5

Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is a character that first appeared in Fighters of Lapis 5. He has been the President of Russia since 7 May 2012. He previously served as President from 2000 to 2008, and as Prime Minister of Russia from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2012. During his last term as Prime Minister, he was also the Chairman of the United Russia political party.

Many of Putin's actions are regarded by the domestic opposition and foreign observers as undemocratic. He was behind the annexation of Crimea.

As a boss

Putin appears as a boss in Fighters of Lapis 5, as well as the leader of Ultron's Russian forces. He fights with his shirt off, tapping into his "inner bear strength". He is kind of a joke to fight, though.
