It’s always a special treat this time of year: the unveiling of the annual Vladimir Putin calendar.

Last year’s 12 months of Putin featured the Russian leader in classic poses — fly-fishing on the river (bare-chested) and cuddling with a fluffy puppy. This year, the calendar shows him diving for ancient relics in July, riding a horse (fully clothed) in October and catching his breath by a tree in April.

So imagine you're Putin. Answer these 10 questions and we'll match you with the month and personality trait of the Kremlin scion.
