The 2018 Russia election has come to a close, with Vladimir Putin running out as the clear winner with 74% of the vote, garnering him the title of President of the country for another six years.
This will be Vladimir Putin’s 4th term as President, spanning into two decades in charge of the nation heading into 2024, after beating 8 other candidates to secure his win. A reported 107 million voters cast their ballots across 11 different time zones last night, with a total of 97,000 polling stations across Russia receiving the voters, most of whom clearly adore Mr. Putin for stabilising the country after the fall of the Soviet Union.
Given the success of Russia as a nation in contemporary history, if anyone recalls how Russia was very different 25 years ago, then surely a lot of credit has to go down to Putin’s leadership, however, mainstream news media claims that in last nights election, there were apparently some 2,000 voting irregularities.
But, just imagine a democracy where a country takes buses of illegals to vote across different states, well that’s not Russia, but that’s the Democrat party of America. So, nobody is yet sure what these reported 2,000 irregularities in last nights polls really mean? But since 74% of 107 million people voted for Vladimir Putin, then by no shadow of a doubt, President Putin won by a landslide, either way.
Meanwhile, the United Kingdom and other western nations accuse President Putin of administering the poisoning act of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yuli in Salisbury, but there doesn’t seem to be any valid evidence of that being the case, apart from the right to suspect that the Kremlin was behind it.
But, who is to say that it was an incident involving Russia as a nation and that this horrible act wasn’t carried out in some other way, by some other force and by some other perpetrator being ultimately responsible for it, which has nothing to with Vladimir Putin?
Could someone else have been able to get a hold of this nerve agent, from somewhere? For why would anyone do such a thing so close to an election to put all the eyes on Russia? Boris Johnson has told news sources that Britain has evidence of the nerve agent being Russian, but the nerve agent is now going to be tested, and this could now take a full two weeks until the results are produced.
After winning the election, Vladimir Putin told the crowd in Manezhnaya Square, Moscow, “Thank you for your support, everyone who voted today is part of our big, national team.”
When asked if he would run for President again, Putin joked, “What you’re saying is just silly … what, am I going to sit here for 100 years?”
Since the Salisbury incident occurred, Russia have vehemently denied the accusations of the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and when Putin was asked about the accusations, he has said that Russia do not have chemical weapons and referred to the notion of them having them, as nonsense. Putin said that if a military nerve agent was used, then anyone would have died on the spot.
Vladimir Putin has said that Russia have been falsely accused, and when he recently spoke on the matter, he said, “As for the tragedy that you mentioned, I found out about it from the media. The first thing that entered my head was that if it had been a military-grade nerve agent, the people would have died on the spot”.
Putin added, “Secondly, Russia does not have such [nerve] agents. We destroyed all our chemical weapons under the supervision of international organisations and we did it first, unlike some of our partners who promised to do it, but unfortunately did not keep their promises.”
Vladimir Putin said Moscow are ready to cooperate with London, “We are ready to cooperate, we said that straight away. We are ready to take part in the necessary investigations, but for that there needs be a desire from the other side and we don’t see that yet. But we are not taking it off the agenda, joint efforts are possible.”
Putin reiterated after his victory regarding the poisoning accusations, saying, “I think any sensible person would understand that it would be rubbish, drivel, nonsense, for Russia to embark on such an escapade on the eve of a presidential election.”
Plus add to that, the upcoming 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer, and perhaps logic would have it that, there could be a chance that Russia are not behind the poisoning, since why would they wish to have all eyes on them in such a way, in the run up to an election and also to the greatest sporting event in the world?
Britain has expelled 23 Russian diplomats based in London, whilst on Saturday 23 British diplomats were expelled from Moscow in retaliation.
As to the future developments of this conflict, it’s still yet unclear as to just how this is going to go, but a horrible incident like that in Salisbury, perhaps if Britain and Russia could conduct progressive talks, then they might find just out who is actually responsible for it.
Rather than the furore of a mainstream news media frenzy of accusations thrown at Putin, amidst the Salisbury incident, without knowing exactly who is responsible for it, just yet. Could somebody else have got a hold of this nerve agent?
One thing that is for sure and that’s that Vladimir Putin is very much against the New World Order, which can be commended.
The latest news from US media is that Sergei Skripal could have been poisoned through the air vents of a car ventilation system, inside a BMW, experts claim, but as to the culprit that remains unsolved.
It looks like Russia are behind the Salisbury incident they say, but that doesn’t mean that they are, countries like France and others did previously ask to see evidence of this, before accusing them.
