Do you think Vladimir Putin may have autism?

Added May 8, 2015

A 2008 study from a Pentagon think tank theorizes that Russian President Vladimir Putin has Asperger's syndrome - "an autistic disorder which affects all of his decisions".

The study from 2008, which was based only on videos of Putin, claimed that the Russian president’s mother had a stroke whilst pregnant with him that left lasting damage.

As a result his "neurological development was significantly interrupted in infancy," the report says.

Putin’s authoritarian style and obsession with "extreme control" is a way of overcompensating for his condition, the researchers concluded. More: usatoday.com.
