Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev (Russian: , tr. “Dmitriy Anatolyevich Medvedev”, IPA:[dmitrj ntoljvt mdvedf]( ); produced 14 September 1965) is the tenth and present Prime Minister of Russia, incumbent since 2012. He formerly served as the 3rd President of Russia, from 2008 to 2012. When he took office in the age of 42, he was the youngest of the three Russian Presidents that have served.
Born into a family of professors, Medvedev graduated in the Law Department of Leningrad State University in 1987. Medvedev’s political career started as the election campaign manager and after an adviser of the St. Petersburg Mayor Anatoly Sobchak. In this time, Medvedev befriended Vladimir Putin. On 14 November 2005, Medvedev was appointed First Deputy Prime Minister and was tasked with managing National Priority Jobs. He also worked as the Chairman of Gazprom’s board of directors, a place which he held until 2008.
Medvedev’s candidacy was backed by the popular outgoing President Vladimir Putin, giving an important increase to his popularity. Although he failed to run for another term as President, Medvedev was named Prime Minister by Putin, who won the 2012 presidential election. On 26 May 2012 he also was named formally as the Leader of United Russia Party.
Widely regarded as more liberal than his predecessor, Medvedev’s top program as President proved to be a wide ranging modernization programme, aiming at modernizing Russia’s economy and society, and reducing the nation’s reliance on gas and oil. During Medvedev’s tenure, Russia emerged triumphant in the 2008 South Ossetia war and recovered in the Great Recession. Recognising corruption as one of Russia’s most serious difficulties, Medvedev has established an anti-corruption effort and pioneered a significant law enforcement reform. In foreign policy, his primary accomplishments include the signing of the New START treaty, a “reset” of Russia–United States relations, which were badly extended following Russia’s war with Georgia, in addition to raising Russia’s alliance with all the BRICS-states, and developing Russia’s entry to the WTO in 2011.
