Vladimir Putin easily wins six more years ruling Russia

Vladimir Putin-Russia

With nearly 74 percent of the vote, Vladimir Putin successfully won another six year term, his fourth as Russia’s leader, making him the country’s longest serving ruler aside from Joseph Stalin.

According to the Associated Press, the race which included eight candidates, was easily decided when the final polls closed in the country’s most western region of Kaliningrad at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

Prior to the election, citizens were inundated with pro-Kremlin media reports and advertisements touting Russia’s strength and power.

Putin asked voters to “choose the future for the great Russia that we all love.”
