Putin Set to Assume Another Term in Office

Quelle surprise:

Russia’s ruling party on Sunday looked set to dominate a new parliament made up of Kremlin loyalists after a state exit poll gave it almost 45 percent in nationwide elections.

Russian state pollster VTsIOM put President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia on 44.5 percent, ahead of the ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party on 15.3 percent, the Communists on 14.9 and A Just Russia on 8.1.
