Yep, I can't think of any Dictators that have handed over their reign to somebody else.
When Putin gave the orders to invade Ukraine, he just has shorten his time in power, if not his life.
I agree. It's easier to control a small country. Hard to see it ending well for him.

Gerald O'Loughlin Geelong 1968
Rino Pretto Fitzroy 1978

These 4 past players all kicked a goal with their first kick in the AFL .

Question: What else makes these 4 stand out from others that have kicked a goal with their first kick?

They didn't have another kick in their AFL/VFL career

The tiny island nation of Tuvalu achieved some notoriety when it was allocated the country code .tv during the advent of the early Internet. In 1998 a deal was struck to pay the country $50 million for the rights to use that TLD.

The money was paid in instalments - with the first, worth a million US dollars, Tuvalu was finally able to join the United Nations.

Verisign administered the TLD until the end of last year and paid Tuvalu $5 million a year for the privilege. This represents one twelfth of Tuvalu's annual GDP.
