NEW YORK, April 16. /TASS/. The American news magazine Time has named Russian President Vladimir Putin among the 100 most influential people in the world, its website says on Thursday.
President Putin appears on the "leaders" list along with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi. The other categories of the Time 100 list of the most influential people are "titans", "artists", "pioneers" and "icons."
Time’s readers have their own ideas of who tops the league of world power brokers. Results published on Monday put Putin in the lead, the magazine noting that its views may differ from those of its readers.
The Time 100 readers’ poll results put President Putin first with 6.95% of the vote, well ahead of Dalai Lama, who got 1.7% of the vote, Pope Francis with 1.5%, and US President Barack Obama, who took 1.4% Chinese President Xi Jinping, Syrian President Bashar Asad and German Chancellor Angela Merkel came with about 0.9% of the vote.
Time's 100 annual list was first published in 1999.
