Vladimir Putin won Russia’s presidential election by an overwhelming majority, allowing him to continue a political dominance that has spanned 18 years. The results were as follows: 76.7% to Putin, 11.79% to Communist Party candidate Pavel Grudinin, 5.7% to ultra-nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky, 1.7% to former reality TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak, and a little over 1% to veteran liberal politician Grigory Yavlinsky. Putin’s fiercest challenger, Alexei Navalny, was barred from running after being convicted on embezzlement criminal charges, opening up a favorable outcome for the former KGB spy. Putin’s re-election will enable him to be president until 2024, where, at the age of 71, he will be obliged by law to step down. If he sees the full term through, it will have placed Putin as the longest-standing leader of Russia, surpassing Josef Stalin. _______ Photo: Yuri Kadobnov (cover), Surgey Pivovarov, Yurki Kochetkov, and Sergei Ilnitsky: WORLD NEWS PUTIN'S RE-ELECTION Mar 19 |Vladimir Putin wins Russian presidential election by a landslide, ensuring 6 more years in office Vladimir Putin won Russia’s presidential election by an overwhelming majority, allowing him to continue a political dominance that has spanned 18 years.
