Russia will have presidential elections today, and guess who is going to win again..... (18.3.2018)


  • Surveys are predicting about 70 percent of support for a longtime Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Putin, 65, who has been Prime Minister or Prime Minister since 1999, has no real competition in this year's elections since Aleksey Navalny's main opposition policy was eliminated from the match.

One of the loudest Putin's critics was not allowed to candidate because of prison sentence five years ago. The 41-year-old called for a "quasi-boycott" boycott and expressed the hope that a few people as possible would come to the voting on these elections.

Including Putin, there will be 7 candidates competing in these elections.

This will be Putin's fourth presidential mandate and maybe the last, as the constitution allows only two consecutive six-year mandates. In the past, these did not stop him. Putin could become prime minister again in 2008, and then he could re-enter the presidential position.

Since the outcome of today's elections is more or less known in advance, the Kremelj fears that it will be characterized by low participation, which would reduce the legitimacy of the result.
On Friday, Putin also called on citizens to attend the elections.

Well..... let's just wait until end of the day....

Navalny is a Washington puppet with no chance of being elected, no matter how desired by handlers and propagandists.
"constitution allows only two consecutive six-year mandates. In the past, these did not stop him. "
Putin did not run in 2008 precisely because of the ban on more than two consecutive terms. So you are lying.
Choice of Russian people is Putin.

I am not saying that Putin is not choice of Russian people, I was just saying that Putin is going to win again, that is all.

Ok, but you also made statements that implied Putin broke the law, which is not true.
Your post was pretty much a repeat of what msm says about Russian elections with few facts and little truth in it.
