Last week, Forbes named Vladimir Putin the most powerful person in the world for the fourth consecutive year. And this week, the Kremlin leader will bask in the glory of his annual marathon news conference.
On this week's Power Vertical Briefing, we preview Putin's big show. Joining me is RFE/RL Editor Steve Gutterman.
NOTE: The Power Vertical Briefing is a short look ahead to the stories expected to make news in Russia in the coming week. It is hosted by Brian Whitmore, author of The Power Vertical blog, and appears on Mondays.
