Vladimir Putin Wins Presidential Election Again
Vladimir Putin will lead Russia for another six years, after securing an expected victory in Sunday’s presidential election.
The main opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, was barred from the race.
Addressing a rally in Moscow, Mr Putin said voters had “recognised the achievements of the last few years”. Speaking to reporters after the results were announced, he laughed off a question about running again in another six years. “What you are saying is a bit funny. Do you think that I will stay here until I’m 100 years old? No!” he said.
