Russia’s Landslide Election

Vladimir Putin won re-election in a landslide victory over the weekend. As of this morning, Putin received over 87% of the vote with over 99% of the vote counted.

The Western press is saying that elections were a scam and that Putin shut down his major opposition because Boris Nadezhdin was not allowed to run and Alexei Navalny was killed.

A court ruled that Nadezhdin was not allowed to run because of “a high percentage of invalid signatures” on his registration. Navalny died in prison but yesterday, President Putin said that Russia was in negotiations to exchange Alexei Navalny with the West. Which supports the theory that the West killed him.

The Wall Street Journal says that Putin won an “election that had only one possible outcome.” In fact, there were three other candidates in the race running against Putin: Leonid Slutsky of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), Vladislav Davankov of New People and Nikolay Kharitonov of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF). The Communist Party is Putin’s closest opponent and their candidate received 4.32% of the vote.

The election was not without incident. There were numerous reports of Ukrainian attempts to bribe and coerce people into sabotaging ballot boxes.
