Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed has been voted the most prominent Arab leader of 2019 in a readers' poll by Russian state outlet RT.
RT Arabic reported that the Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi received 69 per cent of 13.9 million votes, although it did not say how the poll was conducted, what was asked or who the respondents were.
Voting lasted for nine days and ended on December 31.
Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman was considered the second most prominent leader, receiving 16 per cent of the vote, and Jordan’s King Abdullah third, with 12 per cent.
In 2019, Sheikh Mohamed spearheaded UAE efforts to engage with countries in the Arab world and beyond to further its influence and foster bilateral ties.
In October last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Saudi Arabia and the UAE's capital Abu Dhabi in his first official trip to the Arabian peninsular since 2007. He held talks with Sheikh Mohamed, and the two leaders signed deals worth over US$1 billion in energy, tech and health sectors.
In welcoming Mr Putin, Sheikh Mohamed said he considers Moscow to be his second home.
The UAE is Moscow's largest trading partner within the GCC and almost one million Russian tourists visited the UAE in 2018, spending $1.3 billion and putting Russians among the top vacation spenders there.
