Putin wins Presidency
The latest figure is 76.65%. He won 92.14% of the vote in Crimea which shows the tremendous support Crimean's have for him.
Watch the talking heads in the western MSM start denigrating his victory as well as the Russian people who voted for him.
I marvel at the certitude many Western observers of Russia and Russia’s president Vladimir Putin maintain about what Putin really thinks or means, despite the evidence of his own words in his speeches and corresponding actions as president on the international stage. One may approve or disapprove of Pres. Putin’s decisions, but it is a fact for anyone caring to investigate it that Russia’s head of state is a careful, systematic, and consistent thinker.
Additional concerns of his that stand out in these speeches include the need to denuclearize the world, de-escalate the arms race between the West and East, and resolve differences between countries by peaceful means rather than sanctions and invasions. His speeches’ major themes range from the importance of governmental professionalism and propriety to respect for international law and negotiated agreements.
Rather than being obsessed with the U.S. and its budgetary problems born of supporting excessive militarism overseas, Russia desires to have its interests legitimized in the eyes of the West. It is a disgrace and a shame that the West has noticed Russia’s worries about being invaded only after its government developed impressive super-weapons, rather than out of consideration and respect for an international partner seeking cooperation.
