Putin Sworn In For Fourth Term

          It is with a record of 76.7% of the votes that Vladimir Putin was elected for the fourth time to the presidency of Russia. The head of state was officially invested on May 7, at the grand palace of the Kremlin. Unsurprisingly, he designated Dmitry Medvedev as prime minister, submitting his candidacy to the Duma. Vladimir Putin will lead the country until 2024. This election has led to numerous demonstrations against “Tsar Putin”. They resulted in more than 1,600 arrests, including that of opponent Alexei Navalny in Moscow.
