30. Putin...

Is an extremely wealthy Oligarch, as well. The best estimate I can find is that he probably has a net worth of more than $80-billion and doesn't like talking about it. His holdings are vast. You could say he took Russia for a ride and enriched himself while the people are bilked.

Though I sense that Trump is relatively broke, I also think he identifies with Oligarchs completely, and that is another factor. In fact, he also probably thinks that his association with them reflects his status.

If you wanted to sum-up Russian government, it is Oligarchical and there is a lot of big money at the top. Putin is the top dog.
