Vladimir Putin was named the most powerful person in the world in a new ranking by Forbes, followed by President-elect Donald Trump.

The Russian president topped the business magazine’s list for the fourth year in a row, with questions about his government hacking the U.S. election and a largely unchecked Syrian military campaign doing little to diminish his perceived clout.

However, the cast beneath the former KGB agent had significant changes over the past year.

President Obama had spent the years since his election either at No. 1 or among world leaders such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel (No. 3 this year), Chinese leader Xi Jinping (4) and Pope Francis (5).

But in the 2016 calculations, based off of control over people, money and use of their influence, the outgoing president fell to 48, between Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and the Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih.

“Obama will completely go gray, learning that Putin is in 1st place on the Forbes influence list, and he is in 48th. He tried to isolate us. There is the result,” Russian senator Alexei Pushkov crowed on Twitter.

Trump first appeared on the annual list last year in the 72nd spot before his surprise election shot him up next to Putin.
