We know about Mr. Putin, but Leonardo, too, has Russian roots with his two Russian grandparents.
Being the President of Russia, obviously, Vladimir is a busy man. As for Leonardo, he too is a workaholic.
Leonardo, as we all know, is pretty active on the world stage being an actor. The same can be said about Vladimir Putin as well.
Leo is also known for the conservative measures that he takes for the earthly resources. As for Putin, he is a very famous animal lover.
Leo has had raw bison for dinner and slept in animal carcasses for crying out loud in "The Reverant". The climates of Russia shoul not be a big deal.
It should be easy to relate with both of them, as they come from really modest families. While Putin belongs to a worker's family, Leo belongs to a lower middle class family.
These reasons are enough to convince us that no one else can be better to play the role of Vladimir Putin more than Leo!
