Ballot Stuffing Videos Are Going Viral in Russian Federation

Ballot Stuffing Videos Are Going Viral in Russian Federation

It comes as Putin comfortably extended his rule of Russian Federation for another six years last night, winning 76.67 per cent of the vote - his highest score ever. He has promised to use his new term to beef up Russia's defenses against the West and to raise living standards.

Russians voted on Sunday in an election that saw Vladimir Putin virtually secure an expected victory in the presidential election by winning 75.91 per cent of votes with 70 per cent of ballots counted, preliminary data from the Central Election Commission (CEC) showed.

He pointed to the extensive media coverage given to Putin on tightly controlled state-run television, the main source of political information in Russian Federation.

Addressing a crowd near Moscow's Red Square, Mr Putin said his victory was a vote of confidence in his achievements.

"Nevertheless, the continuous contact with Russia's leadership is very important to us", he said.

Backed by state TV, the ruling party, and credited with an approval rating around 80 percent, his victory was never in doubt.

Schiff was also referring to the fact that Putin's biggest political opponent, Alexei Navalny, was barred from the race.

Saturday , Yu and 45-year-old Kevin Esterly were located in Mexico almost two weeks after police say the pair ran off together. It was during the flight that Castrovinci says he observed, through their body actions, that they weren't family.

The certain victory of Putin allegedly anxious the officials about a low turnout, which prompted them to compel the voters of coming to the polls, critics claimed.

By early evening Sunday, the non-governmental election monitoring group Golos had counted 2,000 incidents of voting irregularities, including observers being prevented from carrying out monitoring.

Putin loyalists said the result was a vindication of his tough stance towards the West.

'I think that in the United States and Britain they've understood they can not influence our elections, ' Igor Morozov, a member of the upper house of parliament, said on state television.

Near-final results showed that the other seven candidates were far behind Mr Putin in the polls.

Chinese President Xi Jinping was among the first to offer his congratulations to Putin, saying in a Chinese foreign ministry statement he believed Russian Federation would "definitely continue to create new glories for national development".

Gina Haspel ran CIA's first " black site " in Thailand and was involved in the destruction of videotapes of interrogations. In a statement issued by Trump to the Washington Post , he said the nomination of Gina Haspel was "a historic milestone".

His bellicose language reached a crescendo in a state-of-the-nation speech before the election when he unveiled new nuclear weapons, saying they could strike nearly any point in the world.

Russian Federation faces increasing global isolation over its interventions in Ukraine and in Syria with a fresh round of U.S. sanctions over election meddling in 2016. Putin has proved skilled in tapping into the post-cold-war national mood by forging a new sense of patriotism fuelled by a growing economy.

Last week the administration announced it was enacting new sanctions on Russian Federation, including individuals indicted last month by special counsel Robert Mueller, in a sweeping new effort to punish Moscow for its attempts to interfere in the 2016 United States election.

This isn't new. It's been happening since Putin assumed power.

Putin is constitutionally required to step down in 2024, but he could change the rules to eliminate term limits, or anoint a malleable successor and continue to run things behind the scenes.

After the results were announced Mr Putin laughed off suggestions he could run for a fifth term when his new mandate runs out in six years' time.

"Listen to me. It seems to me that what you are saying is a bit amusing", he told reporters Sunday night when asked if he saw himself running for president again in 2030. That paved the way for another 12 years of Putin after he returned to the presidency in 2012.
