Vladimir Putin has won  2018 Russian Presidential election. Putin was re-elected for a 6-year term to lead Russia till 2024.

At 65 years of age, Putin has been elected for his fourth term of presidency and already holds the record of being the longest-serving leader in Russia after Joseph Starlin.

Putin, a former KGB spy, has dominated Russian Politics for almost 18 years. In 2012 Putin came to executive office by winning the election gaining 63.6 % ballots cast. This year results show a growth in Putin’s popularity compared to the year 2012. However, Putin’s critics say the election was unfair citing Kremlin’s tight control over the media and opposition leader Navalny not being allowed to contest the election.
