Would like to recommend the book 'Putin' (2022) by Philip Short. Very interesting read on the come up of Putin in Russia, starting from when he was a child all the way to the very start of the invasion of Ukraine. Gives a good indication of how he's stayed in power through his means of disposing those he no longer needs by still keeping them in positions of privilege to have them on his side.
