Abstract:

This paper explores the similarities of Adolf Hitlers and Vladimir Putins ascensions to power. It explores how Hitler capitalized on the conditions that existed during the period and draws parallels to Vladimir Putins capitalization on the conditions that existed in Russia at the end of Boris Yeltsins reign as the president of Russia. This paper demonstrates that there are remarkable similarities between the two leaders and offers that the leaders of the world should pay particular attention to Russias leader in the coming years.
