The Russian president took his own mother's advice about matrimonial bliss when first looking for a wife 30 years ago.
'Mother said it's important to find a woman who's good at cooking as well as cleaning,'Putin explained.
'Next, Mother said it's vital to find a woman who can bear you healthy children. But of course!
'Then Mother said it's also important to find a woman with her own money so she does not become a burden on you. Right on, Mama.
'And finally Mother said it's absolutely vital to find a woman who will always act like an experienced hooker in bed. Bullseye!
'Unfortunately there's just one thing Mother forgot to tell me,' Putin added.
'And that's WHAT to do when these four women finally meet.'
