    Vladimir Putin is everywhere in his country's public life. Now it turns out the president is even gracing ordinary Russians' dreams, NBC News reported.

    A web search engine said the strongman was the only real individual "to appear often in people's dreams," according to analysis of users' online queries.

    Yandex, which is more popular than Google in Russia, said it typically received half a million requests a week about the meaning of nighttime visions.

    Putin was the only individual named in Yandex dream searches, which turned up "fish" as the most common query, according to its survey, based on six months of queries.
