    It's not like he has any real competition. Russia is akin to Zimbabwe.

    "Ends long speculation"

    Because everyone knew Putin was "on the bubble" about it. Also, speculation has come to a surprising end as to whether or not the Cleveland Browns will make the playoffs this year. Interestingly enough, it appears fans are taking it in stride. It's almost as if they expected it. Will wonders never cease???

  • MJ83199

    Now that's a shocker!

  • John Smith

    I wonder what his chances of winning are in this farcical election. Let's see, he controls the government, he controls the banks, he controls the industries, he controls who gets elected, he controls the military, he controls the judges and judiciary, he controls the KGB, he controls the media, he controls food distribution, he controls the oligarchs. It's pretty much his own little playground. I think Putin has a good shot of being re-elected. Trump must be upset that he does not have this kind of control.

  • carcar

    lol. "election".

  • Educated

    ....Im sure Trump is getting his campaign money together.

  • Texan9

    Wait, lets get trump to hack them

  • CantStoptheSignalMal

    Why even have an election. Putin is a dictator. This election, like all Russian elections are for show only. He wants to give the world the impression that his people love him while he rigs elections and murders the opposition.

  • Derek Belik

    Remember that debate between Mitt Romney and Obama where Obama said “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years" when Mitt was trying to point out the Russians were a big problem. Looks like Romney had it right after all.

  • Timehascome

  • H Ruth

    Let's see since they don't have free elections in Russia I can already successfully predict the winner of the election & it's not the opposition party

  • Sonora Nomad

    Breaking news....Putin also announced Moscow, Idaho, is Russia's second capital. Trump said..."What took so long?"

  • Aimee

    "Election".

    LOL.

  • ROBOTIX JONES

    The "election" is a farce. This is a dictatorship.

  • Pat Baxter

    What we need to do: In Russia find the nutjob incompetent moron equivalent of Trump and pull every dirty trick in the book to get that moron elected in Russia in 2018. (Turnabout is fair play.)

  • error_does not compute

    Shocker

  • Mari Marigold

    He'll win, because he's a liar and a cheat and he'll just off his opponents.

  • arlincarlson

    It's gonna be hard not give Putin a taste of his own medicine. Maybe we should return the favor and hack his election.Just a thought. Do unto others as done unto you.

  • PeterFromDuluth

    His name is Put In. He will put in himself.

  • WorkingClass

    I guess being U.S. president isn't enough for him.

  • Red Hawk

    Question is will Putin allow a viable challenger to run against him, before he has the guy arrested on one Trumped up charge or another?

  • discos jack

    Time for Trump to give back. Putin guaranteed to win.

  • Lee Thompson

    Of course Putin will run. He's at his pinnacle. He has his most hated enemy, the USA, on the downward slide, a la Trump. Putin will want to see this through.

  • Your Worst Nightmare

    So if Trump votes for him, will that be seen as a positive or a negative for Putin?

  • Puddin' Twain

    No doubt Putin will win with 100% of the vote and all his opponents will be jailed or will mysteriously die.

  • nitenurse22

    I bet he wins.

  • TerminalSanity

    In Putin's Russia Putin elects to have elections elect Putin.

  • george

    Trump will be his VP.

  • tet1953

    I'm gonna bet Putin wins. Who wants to wager? I'll give you great odds!

  • Lenorenevermore

    "Thank you for your support. I will run for president." Define ‘support’ and define ‘run’. Lol what a crock!

  • SpankyHamm

    FoxNews is pleased to announced that with none of the votes counted and no polls having been conducted, that Vladimir Putin has been reelected.

  • JBump

    Democratically elected dictatorship. Russia must have a huge Republican party.

  • JohnC

    gee, I hope he does well. Maybe Trump can help him win.

  • Rascal262

    In the same way Kim Jong Un runs for reelection.

  • tet1953

    Lol bid
    Announces his reelection, more like.

  • MauiOhana808

    No one cares about Putin in the USA, except.........................donnyboy!!!
    Aloha : D

  • Teddy

    Geee....I wonder if he'll win....

  • fmd160

    Russia has elections? Okay, okay. I know they do. But does anyone that is not a blue-collar worker or state employee know, and are they even allowed to vote?

  • MuswellHill

    Well, of course he did! Did anybody seriously think he wouldn't? He is in the driver's seat now with the U.S. election interference.

  • Ka

    More of the same for Russia. Putin Is a thug. He will win the Presidency regardless if its fair or not.

  • Independent

    And Putin believes he is actually elected in a fair election - it is important that if Putin believes that, then thats what he believes and there is no reason not to believe that that is what Putin believes.
