Putin Wins Russian Presidential Election

March 5, 2012

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin won the Russian presidency with a reported 64 percent of the vote, according to The Washington Post.

Putin declared victory on Sunday night, with only 30 percent of the vote counted. His critics in both the U.S. and Russia have called for a fraud investigation, with one monitoring group claiming to have received 3,000 complaints of election misdeeds.

Putin's win comes in the wake of widespread protests in the streets of Moscow from an electorate that is increasingly dissatisfied with Putin's long-term rule of the country. He previously served as president of the country from 2000-2008, and has acted as Russian prime minister since then.
