Vladimir Putin/Forbes

Sitting on top of Forbes magazine’s annual “Most Powerful People in the World” list is Russia President Vladimir Putin.

“Putin has solidified his control over Russia and anyone watching the chess match over Syria has a clear idea of the shift in the power towards Putin on the global stage,” Forbes reasons.

President Obama was named No. 2.

In 2007, to some controversy, Putin was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.”
