Slight variation on the politicians-before-they-were-famous theme: politicians’ kids.

One of Vladimir Putin’s daughters just did her first interview, and a dull business it is too, being pretty much entirely about some university foundation for the promotion of science that she’s involved with.

It’s mostly interesting because it’s thrown up this old shot from some Russian magazine of them when they were kids and – apparently – looked uncannily like their father (if you look at more recent pictures, the ressemblance is barely there).

(And doesn’t he look as though he’d quite happily have you shot, even in high school?)
