The history and bare sequence of events in the Putin-P series, between the events of the Russian era that makes up its backstory and the Vocaloid era that makes up the setting for the present day conflict. Included in the timeline are also important historical dates for the series, as the series makes liberal use of fact as well fiction in the construction of its world.
The Soviet Union referenced in the series was a Marxist-Leninist communist state, including Russia and several bordering countries, that was begun following the overthrow of the Russian Empire in 1917. Following decades of an oppressive militaristic government that became antagonistic towards America in the Cold War, the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The politician Vladimir Putin had a significant role in the Soviet Union and by the early 21st Century resides as president of Russia.
The McDonalds franchise was established during the Cold War era in 1976. After 14 years of intense negotiations with the heads of the Communist Party, a new branch of the franchise was opened in Moscow on January 1, 1990 shortly after the end of the Cold War. With more than 230 outlets across Russia, McDonald by the 21st Century controlled about two thirds of Russia's quick service restaurant market.
During the Cold War the characters Elena and Urusei Teppannov were presumed to have been born. Irina, along with her dog and comrade, are presumed to have been born and grown up after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The character Hatsune Miku is presumed to have been created somewhere during these time periods, as well as Red Rin and the data file of Irina, her dog, and her comrade. The character of Ronald McDonald and his duplicates are also presumed to have been created during the Cold War with the establishment of the McDonald's franchise, and were likely present in Russia after the first McDonald's restaurant opened in Moscow.

The Vocaloid program referenced in the series is a vocal software made to enable producers to synthesize singing with specially recorded vocals of voice actors or singers, with illustrated avatars often presented as the "face" of the synthesized singer. Yamaha began development of the program in March of 2000 with the first VOCALOID engine, before releasing VOCALOID2 in 2007. The voicebank Hatsune Miku was released in August 2007 as the first Japanese Vocaloid, with Kagamine Rin and Len released on December 2007. The voicebank Camui Gackpo was released in July 2008.
The Vocaloids of the series are given wildly different release dates, with Hatsune Miku presumed to be created sometime during the 20th Century and Camui Gackpo made during the Soviet era, judging by his tattoo.
Kagamine Rin, Len, and Hatsune Miku are all presumed to become singing sensations in the 21st Century by the release of the Putin-P Series' first video, "It's the End!", in 2008, fitting more closely with the release of their software counterparts.
