The former KGB boss Vladimir Putin is undergoing the tumultuous mid-life crisis which wreaks havoc upon his emotional stability as a short aging man with a gigantic ego. Instead of pursuing younger women in some misguided male effort to reach for youth, Putin chose to pursue the acquisition of a nation by surreptitiously arming the Russian separatists in Ukraine to annex the port region of Croatia.
Putin has a problem being an overt tyrant, however, because he has a deep-rooted need to appear "heroic" in the eyes of the Russian people (why he controls Russia's press) and of the world in general...so he sneaks his bad acts and makes sure there is "deniability" if he is caught. Sort of similar to Trump's pattern, actually...vindictive to the max if someone dares to question him on bad behaviors, but unwilling to back off from those bad behaviors so long as he can project blame away from himself and onto his henchmen or innocent others.
To Putin's credit: He continued to participate in the P5+1 negotiations to prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons, even though President Obama has kept the economy-crippling sanctions in place on Russia due to the Putin-backed invasion of Ukraine (which Putin likes to deny he did in spite of intelligence that shows the opposite). Putin also did not take vindictive actions against our astronauts sharing the Russian space station as some people (like Trump) would do. Putin is actually more trustworthy and less vicious than Trump, oddly enough.
