This paper examines the leadership of Putin from his ascension to power after the resignation of Boris Yeltsin on December 31, 1999. It looks at how it was the first totally free and democratic election and transfer of power in that nation's history. In particular, the paper discusses his attempt to turn around the economy and how he has failed to fix an economic system that badly needed reform.
Brief Introduction to Vladimir Putin's Life
Vladimir Putin, His Presidency, and the Russian Economy

From the Paper:

"When Yeltsin resigned and turned over the reins to Putin December 31, 1999, Putin's "initial act as president" (415) was very controversial in that he agreed to sign "a decree granting retiring President Yeltsin and his family a series of benefits and privileges." Those privileges included "immunity from criminal investigation or prosecution," according to the book by David MacKenzie and Michael Curran.
In fact, it looked to observers like the free pass for Yeltsin - protecting him against any possible investigations regarding possible wrongdoing while he was in office - was part of the deal in which Yeltsin wanted to turn power over to Putin. "
