Russian President Vladimir Putin made a Time magazine readers' poll shortlist for 2013 "person of the year" — along with Syrian leader Bashar Assad, Iran President Hassan Rouhani and President Obama, the Voice of Russia reported Thursday.

Leading the readers poll is twerking singer Miley Cyrus.

The Tsarnayev brothers, suspected the Boston Marathon bombings, also were shortlisted, the Time online poll showed.

Voting on the Time website will last until Dec. 4, with the readers' winner announced Dec. 6.

Time editors will announce their selection for "Person of the Year 2013" Dec. 11; Obama was the Time pick last year.

Putin headed the Forbes magazine list of the most powerful people in the world, besting Obama, in October.
