Only One Russian on List of Most Influential People

Only one Russian person was included into the Time's 2013 list of the world’s top 100 most influential people, and he is not the Russian president, but the head of the Rosneft oil company, Igor Sechin.

      Sechin, 52, was placed in the list’s “Titans” section, topped by US rapper Jay Z. As it is said in Time's article, "that was the case from 2004 to 2006, when Sechin, a former officer in the KGB and then a top official in Putin’s administration, led the takeover of Russia’s largest oil company, Yukos. In March, Rosneft, the state energy behemoth where Sechin serves as president, completed the largest acquisition in Russian history, purchasing a controlling share of the British-Russian venture TNK-BP and becoming the world’s largest publicly traded oil producer."

      Vladimir Milov, an opposition politician, considers Igor Sechin as the leader of so-called "siloviki" or “people of force” group made up of former security agents, which have enormous influence in Russian political life.
