Earlier, presidential Press-Secretary, Dmitry Peskov, stated that Putin intended to return to the practice of annual press conferences, which he had held during his first presidency (2000-2008), reported The Voice of Russia. Odd (to the delight of the press of the entire world !) is that this conference is planned one day before the predicted “end of the world”.

Remember that Forbes Magazine has ranked Russia’s President Vladimir Putin third on its fourth annual list of “The World’s Most Powerful People “. President Barack Obama maintains the top position for the second consecutive year. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel has occupied to the second place. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates was ranked fourth, Pope Benedict XVI – fifth. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev holds 61st place, bussinessman Alisher Usmanov – 67th and Gazprom chief executive Alexei Miller – in 70th place. Full list of Forbes can be read here.
