Russian President Vladimir Putin. (RIA Novosti/Michael Klimentyev)Putin: ‘Love is the meaning of life’

Vladimir Putin is known for his sharp wit, but musings on love are a relative novelty. In an unexpected remark Friday, the Russian president spoke of the “meaning of life,” saying that for him “in general” it is love that matters.

Briefly digressing from politics, Putin ventured a philiosophical observation that “multifaceted” love is the basis of all actions and the essence of being.

“The meaning of our whole life and existence is love,” Putin told his audience at the 15th Congress of the Russian Geographical Society. “It is love for the family, for the children, for the motherland. This is a multifaceted phenomenon; it lies at heart of any of our behaviors.”
