What to Expect from Putin after Election ‘Landslide’

Election ‘Landslide’

Russians are set for another six years of Vladimir Putin’s rule following an election widely described as a sham. Putin faced no meaningful opposition in the vote. The three-hand-picked opponents on the ballot did not campaign. In his victory speech, Putin said he would now focus on Ukraine following two years of a war against Russia’s neighbor that was expected only to last a few days.
