ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the implications of the increasing interest of Russian President Vladimir V. Putin in energy for Gazprom. The energy company has posted an increased earnings from $440 million to $13.5 billion. The Russian government has paid $7.1 billion to Gazprom subsidiaries to take an additional 10.7 percent stake in the company. The ability of Putin to exploit its national energy supply has led to the increase in per capita personal income in Russia by 29 percent annually since 2001.
