Is it TRUE that Russian President Putin still uses Windows XP? December 19, 2019Leave a comment

Russian President Vladimir Putin uses the locked Windows XP on his official computer. Last month, the Kremlin Press released photos of Putin’s residence in Moscow revealing it. In the photo Mr. Putin sitting in front of a screen with a Kremlin picture in the desktop’s background.


Microsoft Launched Windows XP In 2001

Microsoft started its operating system Windows XP in 2001 and stopped supporting it from 2014. In addition, an alert was also sent to its users that if someone continues to use it, then he is at risk of virus.
However, Russia has imposed restrictions on foreign software and has allowed some with limited restrictions. According to media reports, this is the reason why Putin’s computer would not have been upgraded.


Russia Made Its Own Software

The latest Windows 10 system is being used only on computers that do not require privacy. According to media reports, this is the reason why these new versions are not useful for Putin, as all top-secret documents are accessed as heads.
Official pictures state that he also uses Windows XP at a residence in the Moscow suburb along with the Putin Kremlin office.


Putin Stays Away From Technology

The 76-year-old Putin’s image is not technocratic. It is said that they do not have a smartphone. In 2017, school children were told that they use the Internet occasionally. It was also said that they are not even on Instagram.
