Russia is corrupt af, and it's not like Putin is trying to get out of it. More like the opposite. According to Transparency international, Russia is placed as one of the most corrupt countries (119th out of 168 countries... the 1st being the least corrupt, the 168th being the most corrupt).
They used to be on the 90th place, but then Putin got elected and they've dropped down by 78 places since then.
Russia's invasion in Ukraine kinda speaks for itself.
Putin behaves like a dictator... he pretty much is one. He's friends with Russian oligarchs. The elections that made him president were rigged. He claims to not be rich but multiple accounts estimate him as being one of the richest men in the world, so that would mean he's lying about how much money he makes and is getting loads of cash under the table, so to speak. He gives "benefits" to people he considers his friends. Homosexuality has pretty much been criminalized in Russia but Putin tries to deny it and make it seem like it's not a problem, and tries to derail those facts by pointing at the US instead. Bribing is prevalent.
Honestly a quick google search could give you so many answers.3
