On Business Insider, we found a piece pegged to a pledge by Russian President Vladimir Putin to reduce his salary by 10 percent because of economic sanctions that have been imposed on the country.

Putin’s official salary, by the way, is $136,000.

Business Insider compiled what other world leaders make, and Barack Obama is right up there at $400,000 — just above Canada’s Prime Minister Steven Harper, and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel. 

Narendra Modi of India earns about $30,000 a year — the lowest on the list. The highest? Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at $1.7 million.
