FILE- In this Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2010 file photo, then Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin sits in the co-pilot's seat in the cockpit of an Emergencies Ministry's Beriev Be-200 amphibian multirole jet, flying drop water over forest fires in Ryazan region, some 180 km (111 miles) southeast of Moscow. Vladimir Putin turns 60-years old on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012, and has recently sought to demonstrate his youthful vigor by many personal endeavors, but while he has shown creativity in his action-man stunts, the Russian president seems surprisingly vulnerable to the vagaries of oil prices.
