Russians see Putin, not Medvedev in control

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russians consider Prime Minister Vladimir Putin the country’s key political figure, continuing to overshadow his successor as president, Dmitry Medvedev, according to an opinion poll released on Tuesday.

The survey was conducted this month after statements by Medvedev criticizing the country’s widespread corruption and other failings, in what some analysts said was a bid to define his own vision and emerge from Putin’s shadow.
