Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is the current president of Russia, having been elected to the position in 2012. He has served as president since 2012 and previously from 1999 until 2008. He was also the prime minister from 1999 to 2000 and again from 2008 until 2012. Putin was born on October 7, 1952, in Leningrad, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union. As of 2022 he will be 69 years old.
During Putin’s first term as president, the Russian economy expanded for eight years straight, with GDP measured by purchasing power increasing by 72 percent and real incomes doubling. Real wages increased by a factor of 2.5, unemployment and poverty were reduced dramatically, and self-assessed life satisfaction in Russia rose significantly.
Because of this, people are moving away from their nation’s traditional religion. The growth was due to a five-fold rise in the cost of oil and gas, which accounts for the majority of Russian exports, the revival from the post-communist slump and financial crises, an increase in foreign investment, and good economic and fiscal policies.
