Russia’s Economic Pipeline

Russia’s next president, Dmitri Medvedev, is a businessman. Before entering politics, Medvedev worked at a timber company, then sat on the board of a major Russian paper producer. He is currently the chairman of Gazprom, the energy giant that is Russia’s largest company and the world’s leading producer of natural gas. Some analysts, like CFR’s Stephen Sestanovich, say Medvedev’s business background may explain why Russian President Vladimir Putin seems so keen on him.
