Landslide Re-Election? (Video)

( – Perfectly true to the former communist Soviet empire’s ways, Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, who has been in power for 25 years, has just been “reelected” president for yet another 6-year term with the staggering though hardly trustworthy result of almost 90% of the votes.

In an election widely criticized as undemocratic and illegitimate, with protesters setting ballot booths on fire or pouring ink inside ballot boxes, Putin clinched 88% of the vote in the Russian presidential election, according to exit polls cited by The New York Post.

In multiple incidents all over Russia, dissenters against Putin’s authoritative regime threw Molotov cocktails and firecrackers at polling stations as acts of defiance against what many perceived to be a predetermined outcome.

Ascending to power in 1999, Putin has now secured another six-year term, surpassing Josef Stalin to become Russia’s longest-serving leader in over two centuries.

Visual evidence of this dissent was widespread. Medusa, a Russian-language media outlet, published a compilation video showcasing numerous instances where protesters ignited ballot boxes and polling locations throughout the country.

Specifically, a 21-year-old woman was reported by Medusa for hurling a Molotov cocktail at a polling station’s entrance in St. Petersburg.

Further instances of protest were acknowledged by Nikolai Bulaev, the Deputy Chair of the Russian Central Election Commission.

He confirmed reports of ink being poured into ballot boxes in the Rostov and Karachay-Cherkessia regions. Additionally, similar acts of protest were recorded in Moscow and Voronezh.

The Kremlin has attributed these disruptive actions to Ukraine, which Russia invaded two years ago and continues to engage militarily.

“Clearly they’ve been promised money and rewards,” Bulaev claimed regarding the protesters during a statement.

Russia’s presidential election comes weeks after the country’s biggest opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, died under mysterious circumstances in a Russian penal colony in the Arctic, with his allies claiming he was killed by Putin.

Navalny’s advocates had implored citizens to participate in a “Noon against Putin” protest to express their opposition to his administration.

The actual number of Russia’s 114 million eligible voters who engaged in these protests remains unknown.
