🇷🇺 Russian elections: Putin expected to win fourth term as president | Al Jazeera English 4

Polls have opened in Russia's presidential election, which is widely expected to hand Vladimir Putin a fourth term in power - meaning he could lead the country until 2024.

According to Russia's constitution, no president can run beyond two consecutive terms, but it is unclear who will emerge to replace Putin.

Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from Moscow.

The golden Yuan + crypto currency is going to bring middle east oil to Russian boards + seriously devalue the petro dollars use. Chinas string of pearls trading route will soon be secure with the developing islands. Chinas also based in Pakistan, just waiting for the US to skip an Iran deal payment.

After watching lots of MSM media I have this feelings that they are not trying to make putin lose the election really BUT trying to make the election itself looks ilegitimate. ah well whatever if putin is actually really strong it doesn't matter even if west hate him, but if he is weak then he will be overthrown by the west with some colour revolution perhaps.

AJ is lying as usual. Putin said that it would be his last term and he would not seek to change constitution. Putin, in contrast with hapless US stooges in EU governments,  is keeping his word.

Putin does not care about Russia, most people in Russia live in poverty.

GOD bless you mr. Putin. The world community is happy that you are in this world.👍👍👍👏👏👏

When Mr. Putin is reelected for six years more, the west will not suffer from Russiaphobia alone, they will suffer from Putinphobia as well. Its time for a psychologist. Hahaha.🤣😂😜

Russian policy is one man show, US has advantage because it is countries policy which works no matter whoever takes the presidency. Now this is the last term for the Putin, it will be interested to see who will carry this legacy, otherwise Russia will find it difficult in the international arena.
