The Economist

The Economist put the image of Russian president Putin on the cover. The current issue is dedicated to the anniversary of the Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution, which took place in October 1917.

The cover image was put on the magazine’s official Twitter page.  


In the editorial, The Economist wrote that Putin gained the tsar’s title, ‘having saved the country from what many Russians consider to be the chaos of the 1990s’. The outlet also marks that as the 100th-anniversary approaches, Putin has been 'sharing the tsars’ weaknesses', and thus he is not the only autocrat in the world.
