Vladimir Putin is making sure he has a safe pathway into Monero when the need arises and when Monero's market cap and liquidity are large enough.
That's a video of Putin himself talking. Official Russian gov website. I saw this on the front page of /r/Bitcoin
As you can see gentlemen, it's happening. This is not some random FUD made up by coindesk "sources".
I recommend you HODL because When Putin comes knocking and asks for a bunch of Monero at $10k/XMR on the open market, you'll be there to sell him some.
