Walk like a Russian dictator

You never know when you might need this skill:

[R]esearchers believe that Putin’s gait may be caused by his roots as a KGB officer. Researchers found a training manual for the Russian security agency, now known as the FSB, and pinpointed a section that instructs operatives to “keep their weapon in their right hand close to their chest and to move forward with one side, usually the left.”

The authors think this could explain the absence of the right arm swing in Putin, and posited that they could find a similar gait in other Russian officials “who might have received similar instruction during weapons training by the KGB or other military or intelligence agencies.”
