Russia's presidential election is nearing. We already know who the winner will be

·1 min

Russia is approaching a presidential election that is expected to solidify Vladimir Putin’s rule for the next decade and potentially beyond. The election, scheduled for March, is seen as a formality with no real chance of removing Putin from power. Opposition candidates have been barred from participating, and prominent anti-Putin figure, Alexey Navalny, has died. The voting will take place over three days, with early voting already underway in remote areas. The election is largely viewed as a way for Putin to further tighten his grip on power in Russia.
