At the beginning of May 1992, the family of the mayor of Saint Petersburg, Anatoly Sobchak, and the family of the current president of Russia, Vladimir Putin arrived on holiday to Finland at the invitation of a privately held company and recorded it on tape. The tape included the families doing things such as talking, fishing, eating, and playing sports and was about 12 minutes long.

How the tape was acquired by non-family members in the first place is unknown, but previous holders of the video initially evaluated the value of the recorded videotape (1 to 5): " Uniqueness of the material - 5 points; The recording level participants' discrediting - 2 points; Social significance of the material - 5 points; Importance of the material to the world - 5 points. Overall - 4.25 points. "

Background

There is little known about the exact details of this video. It is unknown on who was videotaping, and why this event was recorded. The video also does not appear to to contain anything sensitive other than the footage of Putin and his family behaving informally.

Availability

The information about this tape was found on some online shopping website trading for ฿100 (241500 USD). The seller claims that he bought the physical videotape, in early 2015 and digitized it. Now, he sells the electronic copy of it online. Other than some screenshots and information on the tape, little else is known about it.

I have a personal tape of me at Disneyland and it's not on the internet, does this mean I have lost media? No, it doesn't. So why is this counted as that? Is it because Putin is famous?

If you had footage of lets say. Kurt Cobain admitting to being suicidal or Freddie Mercury's AIDS tests. Wouldn't that be worth something to fans?
