It's all a mater of term or semantics based upon the form of government that a given country have: presidential or parliamentary or mixed. It all implies the highest officer of the land.

This has always confused me as well. I know there are countries that have both a president and a Prime Minister, one of them being Russia. I guess in that case the office with the most power is whichever one held by Putin.

Putin wouldnt definitely allow the prime minister to make key decisions.
