Russia Today – Putin named Times’ International Person of the Year
Russia Today reports on an interesting new perspective of President Putin in an article by the leading UK daily newspaper, The Times. In an article by Roger Boyes (Diplomatic Editor), the newspaper heralds the President as the ‘Man of the Year’ for his efforts to ‘bring Moscow back to the international high table’. The President’s bold efforts in Syria are highlighted in particular for having been a ‘face-saver’ for the US and Britain.
The Times has not been the only international publication noticing the President’s efforts this year. Although the award was ultimately given to Pope Francis, Time Magazine also nominated the President for ‘Person of the Year’.
It is good to see a new open-minded perspective from the West of a head of state from one of the BRICS that for too long has been sidelined by the investment community.
