Putin wins Russian election

March 22, 2018

Vladimir Putin has won Russia’s general election.

It means he’ll be President of the country for another 6 years. He’s ruled Russia for nearly 20 years and is one of the most important world leaders.

President Putin got more than three quarters of the vote.

But not everyone’s happy. Some say the election was corrupt.

In some areas, free food and discounts in local shops were on offer near polling stations.

Video recordings from polling stations showed irregularities in a number of towns and cities across Russia. Several showed election officials stuffing boxes with ballot papers.

Russia is a global superpower and they need a better government to control that. therefore Russia needs a better government.


Not surprised, at all.
