Putin to tighten his grip over power following election

MOSCOW, 17 March: Russian President Vladimir Putin will tighten his grip on power in Sunday’s presidential election as he is expected to win by a landslide.

Putin came to power in 1999, and this time, his success in the election is certain to become the longest-serving leader of Russia in the last 200 years.

The election comes two years after Putin launched what he calls a special defensive operation against Ukraine, the deadliest war since World War II.

In the run-up to the election, Ukraine has been carrying out attacks on Russian oil refineries and border attacks by proxies.

Putin has already warned the West that any interference in the elections will be considered an aggression against Russia.

There is no candidate in the field to challenge Putin in these elections and he wants to show that he has the support of the Russians on a large scale.

The Kremlin has predicted a high turnout and initial reports put the turnout at 60 percent in the first two days.
