Between 2013 and 2016, Vladimir Putin was named the world’s most powerful person four times. During this time, the Russian president has expanded the influence of his country around the world.

Vladimir Putin sits as the second most powerful man behind Xi Jinping but with current War with Ukraine might see him climb to the position he once was.

In 1999, he was appointed Prime Minister of Russia. That position lasted until 2000 when he was promoted to president, a position he held until 2008.

After that, he returned to the position of prime minister, which he held until 2012. His next move was to resume his duties as President of Russia, a position he has held since May 2012.

He has effectively been in charge of the world’s largest country in terms of landmass for the past 15 years. In nearly the same time span, the United States has gone through administrations led by Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama.

While American presidents struggle to get anything done because of a sluggish Congress, Putin appears to be able to do everything he wants.

Concerns over the likelihood of Ukraine joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (or Nato) are among Russia’s concerns, according to the country.

Historically, Russia and Nato countries like the United Kingdom and the United States have had a tense relationship.

Putin fears that the United States and its allies would have too much influence in the region if Ukraine joins NATO.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin appeared on Russian television before the invasion began and claimed that Ukraine was part of Russia, and cautioned other nations not to intervene.
