Medvedev’s father was a chemical engineer who taught at the Leningrad Institute of Technology and his mother taught Russian at Herzan State Pedagogical University. He was a curious and intelligent child who enjoyed reading and intellectual pursuits, and at the age of 17 he was admitted into Leningrad State University to study law, graduating in 1987, before moving on to further study; he completed his PhD in 1990. Until 1999, he taught law at the newly renamed Saint Petersburg State University, and worked at a consultancy firm.

Medvedev was brought into politics by Vladimir Putin, a former colleague, and Prime Minister to the President Boris Yeltsin. Upon Yeltsin leaving of office, Putin was appointed to the Presidency. In December of 1999, Medvedev was appointed deputy head of presidential staff.

In 2007, President Putin endorsed Medvedev as his successor, and he officially registered as a candidate in the election on the 20th of December in that year. The general election was held on the 2nd of March 2008, and Medvedev won with over 70% of the votes cast, due in large part to the enduring popularity of his supporter Putin. It was reported that had the two men run against each other, Medvedev would have received just 9% of the vote. At 42 years of age, he was the youngest man to ever be elected to the position.

Medvedev served as President for four years, between 2008 and 2012, with Putin as his Prime Minister. Their relationship was heavily scrutinized and discussed in the media. Although President is the superior position to Prime Minister, many believed it was Putin who wielded the most power. Medvedev was more liberal than his colleague, however, and implemented various anti-corruption policies throughout his term. In 2012, it was Putin who was nominated for the Presidential candidacy, and the two switched positions.

Medvedev’s finances have been disputed, as he lives in a luxurious home with his family and yet reports only an $80,000 annual income. Some have said this suggests some financial corruption.
Medvedev has been incorporated into a popular meme on Russian websites, in which he is portrayed as a bear (Medved in Russian translates as bear).

In his personal life, Medvedev was married in 1982 to Svetlana Medvedeva, his childhood sweetheart. Together, they have a son born in 1995, and live in Moscow. He enjoys music, particularly British rock bands of the 1970s, and is also very physically active, swimming for an hour daily, and lifting weights and jogging among other things. He speaks English as a second language. On his career, he has stated: “Being a prime minister is a very demanding job, and as long as I have the strength, I will continue to do this and be of benefit to my country”.

Quotes

#Quote
1I believe in Father Frost. But not too deeply. But anyway, you know, I'm not one of those people who are able to tell the kids that Father Frost does not exist.
2When I was a young student, I only listened to foreign music, mainly rock music and hard rock. Then I surprised myself by discovering ethnic music. Now I like to listen to music from different places, and in many situations. Even when you work, some ethnic music calms the nerves.
3Work that mobilizes you 24 hours per day and makes you responsible to all of the people in the country is worth propelling yourself through jetlag and uncomfortable news for.
4I do like classical music, and soft rock, and jazz, which I never listened to when I was 15. Now I like it. The older you get, the more tolerant you get, right?
5Legal reform in Russia is a must. And I keep track of it daily.
6When you borrow money, you should always think how you're going to pay it back.
7I've never tried to measure myself on any scale. A person is more multifaceted than the label they often get stuck with. On the other hand someone's whole behaviour allows you to characterise them in a certain way. This person has liberal convictions, that person has conservative ones, this person is a radical socialist, and so on.
8Business is always looking to avoid the toughest norms. But some do it in a civilized way, while others push it using uncivilized, brazen methods.
9I always say that modernization is not an abstract thing; it's a very specific task.
10Those who play badminton well take decisions quickly.
11Being a prime minister is a very demanding job. And as long as I have the strength, I will continue to do this and be of benefit to my country.
12I believe religion is important for every person.
13Stability and a prosperous life cannot be set off against a set of political rights and freedoms.
14Any politician is to a certain degree a mentor. They preach something.
15Terrorism tramples upon any rights and freedoms and generates fear and hatred; it is an obstacle to efforts at improving our world.
16What's the point of elections if everything is already decided?
17I am president and do not have the right to give in to emotions. I have bad moods, very bad moods, but I never feel despair.
18My main ambition is to be of use to my country and my people.
19Russia made a decisive contribution to the victory over Nazism. That's clear to every honest observer. So, therefore, in a certain manner, it is indeed part of the country's national psyche.
20I don't want to live in a militarised country behind an iron curtain. It's boring. Been there and seen the movie. I've done that.
21When I get into a bad mood, I do sports and then everything's OK. And then I go and make decisions, however painful they may be.
22The Cold War was a boring thing. Nobody gets better for it. Tremendous money is wasted. Our lives get more difficult. We look at each other as enemies. What's good in that? In any case, I will do anything in my power in order to stop another Cold War, with the U.S. or any other country in the world.
23Considering I'm a young president, I wouldn't like to make an evaluation of myself. It's not my job to do that.
24Let the people decide whom to vote for, who has more authority. And only people, only our citizens, are able to place the final emphasis, voting for this or that person or political force, or rejecting it. That's democracy.
25Freedom is a unique concept that everyone interprets differently.
