Top 10 Most Powerful People in 2014

Russian President Vladimir Putin was ranked as the world's most powerful person by Forbes after Russia managed to put US threat of an attack on Syria at bay and Russia also gave asylum to former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who spilled the bins on US intelligence for the first time.

The ex-KGB strongman who controls a nuclear-tipped army, a permanent seat on the UN Security Council and some of the world's largest oil and gas reserves is allowed to serve another six-year term, which could keep him in office until 2024. Also inked a deal to build a more than $70 billion gas pipeline with China (the planet's largest construction project) our choice simply seems prescient. Below are the most powerful people in 2014.
