The Russian system is not yet capable of running on its own, without Putin amid internal and external challenges and threats.

Russian youth sees him as a hero; photos, participating in skiing, fishing, hunting, judo, hockey, ice dip in sub zero freezing water to mark Epiphany, and horse riding are a trademark of his physical strengths and connection to them.

Putin established economic reforms; concentrated on foreign policy and security. Keen eyes on young democratic countries in emerging markets and Arab Spring geopolitical uncertainty, to capture opportunities in energy.

Putin’s feuds with Western powers, has characterized him a villain, but a hero at home. He is criticised for centralized political and economic power in his own hands; he did what was required in the best interest of Russia.

The future of the companies established businesses and secured, tenders, projects and public procurement in Putin’s regime.
