Russia’s next presidential election in March. The current Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided to stand in that election. At present, since there is no strong opposition to Putin in Russia, those concerned believe that he will win this election. As a result, at least until the year 2030, he is one of the most powerful countries in the world. The British news agency Reuters reported this information on Monday (November 6) about six sources.
71-year-old Putin has been in power in Russia since 1999. He has been president longer than any other ruler since Joseph Stalin. Still, he feels that Russia needs to be in power in this dangerous day.
A source close to Putin’s election plans said the decision had been made. He will fight. Another source said that Putin’s advisers have already started preparing to participate in the next election.
Diplomats, intelligence and other officials have long said Putin will rule Russia for life. However, no one could say anything clearly about whether he will re-enter the election field.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Russian president had no comment on the matter. The election campaign has not been officially announced yet.
Diplomats say there is no heavyweight challenger to challenge Putin in the election arena. 80 percent of people are in favor of him. State structures and media are in his hands. Besides, there is no opposition among the mainstream public to his continued rule.
However, Putin is in some trouble with the Ukraine war. The Russian president is involved in the biggest conflict with the West after the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis over this war. The West is trying to put Russia’s economy in jeopardy with a series of sanctions. However, the Kremlin chief is trying to compensate for this loss by turning his back on the West and focusing on Asia and Africa.
