President Vladimir Putin has won the latest Russian election, receiving the highest percentage of votes since the Soviet Union’s dissolution.

The victory underscores Putin’s strong position in Russian politics and his intention to continue leading the country with a firm stance, especially in its relations with Western countries and ongoing military actions in Ukraine.

President Putin, who has been in power since 1999, will now extend his leadership, setting a new record in Russian history. With 87.8% of the votes according to exit polls, Putin’s win reflects a solid backing from Russian citizens.

However, several countries, including the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom, have criticized the election process, pointing out the lack of fairness due to the imprisonment of political rivals and media censorship.

The election saw other candidates as well, but none came close to challenging Putin’s dominance. Following his victory, Putin emphasized Russia’s military strength and its ongoing operations in Ukraine, stating the importance of unity against external pressures.

During his victory celebration, many of his supporters gathered, chanting his name and showing their support for Russia. Despite opposition protests inspired by the late Alexei Navalny, Putin dismissed any significant impact on the election results.

Addressing questions about the election’s democratic nature and responding to critiques, especially from the United States, Putin defended the election process and criticized the U.S. political system.

The backdrop of this election includes the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, with Putin mentioning possible actions to secure Russia’s borders and interests.
