He's definitely the most feared man in the world and I guess fear is a power in itself so i think it's possible.

I agree. Fear gives somebody power but we need to take that power away. We should not fear him.

Agree. He is only a man after all.

True. Some people derive their power from inciting fear in people and I believe Putin is like this.

He does not have much of an ally so I don't believe that he is the most powerful man in the world.

agree. Fear can be a powerful motivation to get what you want but as what Ben said, he has no allies, no friends so that's not really power.

He could be but it's probably because we don't know much about him and knowledge is power.

I don't think he's the most powerful man in the world simply because not every country is affected by his countries policies and regulations.

No. We shouldn't give him the power by fearing him.

People gain power from inciting fear in others and for this reason, I believe Putin is the most powerful man in the world.
