I didn't say Putin was Bismarck. However, he is ex-KGB and likely extremely intelligent and capable. Care to explain how exactly he has possibly turned Russia more backward than the Soviet Union? And define "backward", since it appears everyone is obsessed with "forward" and no one takes a minute to define what either is, or why for that matter.

Capable is definitely not the same as good, and definitely not when looking at Putin (and Russia's) record on human rights and democracy
Backward in a purely economic sense, describing smaller or less functional economies.
Here's a nice graph of USSR vs post-USSR economies:
and just Russia
You can look at the charts and say that Russia is growing, and that's good. The problem is that Medvedev and Putin caused a slowdown of economic growth, especially sustainable growth, as the post-USSR economy is massively based off of oil and gas rather than industry, which makes it more fragile and corrupt.
Basically, Russia has been just fulfilling post-USSR industrial capacity (effectively just refilling lost jobs) rather than creating new work, which makes much of this "growth" very unimportant.
While the USSR sucked balls and I don't support it, its economy was significantly more stable and robust than that of Putin. It was probably more abusive of human rights, but only because it had the power and thought it was just in using it; Putin seems only to abuse rights when politically expedient.
tl;dr: USSR econ sucked, Putin sucks more
