10 Surprising Facts About Vladimir Putin’s Extraordinary Past

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 20, 2014

Russian President Vladimir Putin has stood — often bare-chested — at the helm of Russian politics since 1999, rotating between the presidency and the prime minister’s office.

But before his fast rise to power, Putin spent most of his life far out of the limelight.

With Putin at the center of several global crises, from Syria to Ukraine, The WorldPost takes a look back at the leader’s surprising past.

1. Vladimir Putin grew up in a communal apartment shared by three families in St. Petersburg (then known as Leningrad), and he says he remembers hunting rats in the stairwell.

Vladimir Putin Wins Russia’s Presidential Elections, State Exit Polls Claim

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 4, 2012

Prime minister Vladimir Putin has declared victory in Russia’s presidential election as exit polls and preliminary results gave him around 60% of the vote.

Speaking at a rally outside the Kremlin, Putin thanked his supporters ahead of a concert arranged to celebrate his victory.

With tears in his eyes, he said: “I promised you we would win, and we won. Glory to Russia!”

“We have won in an open and honest battle. We proved that no-one can force anything on us.”

The vote was tainted by claims of violations, including “carousel voting” in which voters were bused around to cast several ballots.

Mr Putin tallied 58%, according to a nationwide exit poll conducted by the VTsIOM polling agency. Another exit poll by the FOM opinion survey service showed Mr Putin received 59% of the ballot.

Official vote results from the far eastern regions where the count was already completed seemed to confirm the poll data. With just over 20% of all precincts counted, Mr Putin was leading the field with 63% of the vote, the Central Election Commission said.

But if thousands of claims of violations made by independent observers and Mr Putin’s foes are confirmed, they could undermine the legitimacy of his victory and fuel protests. The opposition is gearing up for a massive rally in central Moscow on Monday.

“These elections are not free … that’s why we’ll have protests tomorrow. We will not recognise the president as legitimate,” said Mikhail Kasyanov, who was Mr Putin’s first prime minister before going into opposition.

Golos, Russia’s leading independent elections watchdog, said it received numerous reports of “carousel voting”, in which busloads of voters are driven around to cast ballots multiple times. Alexei Navalny, one of the opposition’s most charismatic leaders, said observers trained by his organisation also reported seeing extensive use of the practice. Read the rest of this entry »

Vladimir Putin Wins Russia President Elections, Says State Television Exit Polls

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 4, 2012

MOSCOW — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin rolled to victory in Russia’s presidential election on Sunday, according to exit polls cited by state television, but the vote was tainted by claims of violations, including “carousel voting” in which voters were bused around to cast several ballots.

Putin tallied 58 percent, according to a nationwide exit poll conducted by the VTsIOM polling agency. Another exit poll by the FOM opinion survey service showed Putin received 59 percent of the ballot.

Official vote results from the far eastern regions where the count was already completed seemed to confirm the poll data. With just over 20 percent of all precincts counted, Putin was leading the field with 63 percent of the vote, the Central Election Commission said.

But if thousands of claims of violations made by independent observers and Putin’s foes are confirmed, they could undermine the legitimacy of his victory and fuel protests. The opposition is gearing up for a massive rally in downtown Moscow on Monday.

“These elections are not free … that’s why we’ll have protests tomorrow. We will not recognize the president as legitimate,” said Mikhail Kasyanov, who was Putin’s first prime minister before going into opposition.

Russian Elections: Thousands Defying Ban To Protest Putin Result

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 6, 2011

Thousands of people took to the streets on Tuesday to protest against disputed parliamentary elections in Russia.

Allegations of corruption in Sunday’s parliamentary election were rife, and demonstrators defied a ban on unapproved rallies in Moscow city centre to dispute the official results.

The police arrested at least 300 protesters in the biggest protest seen in Russia for years. Opposition leaders stood in front of a poster proclaiming, ‘The election is a farce!”.

The protestors came up against pro-Kremlin activists rallying to support Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Putin’s United Russia party won with just under 50% of the vote, a sharp drop in its support.

Foreign monitors claimed that cyber-attacks and harassment of officials had invalidated the result of the poll.

The protests have been happening since Sunday and show little sign of abating. People were held after similar protests in St Petersburg and also in Rostov-on-Don

Putin will be running for president early in 2012, he is almost certain to win unless there is a dramatic change in the system.
