Why Does Klaus Schwab Think That Vladimir Putin Was a WEF Young Global Leader?

You can forgive an old man

There is a very interesting 2019 video of an interview in Costa Rica in which Klaus Schwab lists Tony Blair, Angela Merkel, and Vladimir Putin as former World Economic Forum “Young Global Leaders”. (Hat tip to reader.)

Apparently WEF “Young Global Leaders” must be 38 or under when they are admitted. At 38 Putin would have still been in the KGB in the dying days of the USSR in 1990. 

Also, WEF didn’t start the Young Global Leaders program (as “Global Leaders for Tomorrow”) until 1993 when Putin was already 41.

I doubt Putin was a WEF Young Leader, I think Schwab misremembered. But I also think that Schwab wrongly remembering Putin being a young WEF hope is notable.

I think that an old guy like Schwab (in 2019 he was already 81) can be excused to under the pressure of a live interview wrongly remember someone whom he first met in 1992 and who still addresses him with “dear Klaus” was one of his old “Young Global Leaders”.

An ex-Junger Globaler Führer or not, there aren’t many sitting heads of state who are happier to conference with good ole Schwab than Putin.

Not a former formal Young Global Leader but something just as good?

I’m not as smart as you guys. But is there a reason why Putin is completely a part of Great Reset as far as vaccination and covid passports are concerned but at the same time seems to not be a part of it when it comes to enforcing woke culture,open borders,military etc? Is it possible that he is a part of the covid story unwillingly or is he the one driving it in Russia and a large number of high ranking officials are preventing him for implementing it more? For all the pandemic approach similarities Russia,China,Turkey,Hungary,Poland etc still arent following the great reset agenda completely in terms of all the other degeneracy.

I think it is because he choses his battles very carefully! He doesn’t want any unnecessary smearing from the usual suspects!

It’s a good question and one that I have also pondered. Herman Gref of Sberbank is all aboard the Great Reset train, as well as the woman who is in charge of the Health portfolio. Her name eludes me. I am beginning to wonder if Putin is simply a plant, a fake populist, much like Trump, but much more intelligent and pragmatic. Every national government with very few exceptions has been infiltrated and subsumed by the WEF, and I have no reason to believe that Russia should be an exception. The useful charade of nationalism, independence etc. has to be maintained, as does an artificial “state of tension” with the West, but I think it is all theater. A theater that will from time to time feature actual combat, but a kabuki sort of combat, where the endgame is known to all, but maybe not to the unwitting stooges – like Ukraine. All of it reeks.

Very good comment! I agree with you 100%. The problem is that if everything is undertaken on global scale – global problems and global solutions may also end up in global catastrophe with no winners! Only time will tell…

Pay particular attention to what he said about China! MSM would never report on this! All the best to you and everybody else!

The “reason” is because your whiny idiotic view of the “great reset” is rubbish. Putin is not some messiah, he’s just better at some things, and corrupt in other ways. Not bowing to nonsensical homosexuality laws doesn’t necessarily make him a top freedom fighter, sorry.
The things you list as bad are the CONSEQUENCES of foreign policy of West & their greedy liaisions with mid east races. Russians aren’t in the same position as US, who are RESPONSIBLE for their current situation out of their habits and history. No one entity forced those things upon them. Same for certain European nations, who make crime deals that force them to do certain things in exchange. Look at British leaders and love for Saudis, even Russian oligarchs.

All I know is, that all these smart young global leaders are terrible for the rest of us.

Here is a look at who is funding Schwab’s World Economic Forum:

One has to wonder if the leaders of these companies aren’t expecting to get special favours from the World Economic Forum as the Great Reset is implemented.

Like anyone who makes it to the top Putin had to make his way through the institutions until he was powerful enough to become an institution; which he now is.

Who made Klaus king? How sweet he gives a crystal. Is that that gift made from the remains of humans after the bioreactor converted them to their, “crystal conscience?”

Covid Vax is the mark of the beast and if anyone want to understand where is Mr.Putin, and by the way Mr. Trump, it’s easy to see in what side of that mark is Mr. Putin and all his so called friends. Some years ago a former KGB spy, Mr. Golytsin wrote a book about Perestroika and the true spiritual fathers of Mr. Putin(Andropov, Gorbatchev,…): a prophetic book!
