Preliminary Results: Putin Achieves Decisive Victory In Russian Presidential Election

The Russian Central Election Commission (CEC) has published preliminary results of the 2018 presidential election [55.34% of ballots processed].

  • Vladimir Putin is leading with about 75% of votes.
  • Communist Party candidate Pavel Grudinin is running second with about 13%.
  • A candidate from the so-called “liberal opposition” Ksenia Sobchak currently has about 1.5%.

The voter turnout is currently 59.93%.

Vladimir Putin is going to secure a decisive victory in the Russian presidential election 2018. A large-scale campaign of the so-called “liberal opposition”, backed up by Western power holders, aimed at discrediting the election has resulted in a total failure. The voter turnout of 59,93 shows that a major part of the Russian population has ignored the opposition’s appeals to ignore the election in order to declare it illegitimate.

Even if claims of the so-called “liberal opposition” and the “international community” about alleged “mass forgeries” are close to some kind of reality and the current government has “added” additional 5-6% to Putin [it’s hardly possible to add more under the conditions of live broadcasting from polling stations], the current Russian president has achieved a resounding victory.

It’s interesting to note that Grudinin, a candidate from Russia’s Communist Party, has achieved the second result with about 13%. Grudinin has been the Putin’s competitor that has shown himself as professional politician. One the same time, the communist candidate has more hard-line views on the governemnt and foreign pilicies that Russia should implement.

On the same time, the “liberal opposition” candidate, Sobchak, has failed. She and her backers from pro-Western power elites have tried to exploit the desire of changes among the population, especially among middle-class in big cities. Sobchak, a pop-tv anchor, has promoted herself as a “none-of-the-above” candidate and called on all who do not want to vote in favour of Putin to support her. This strategy has appeared to be inefficient.

Earlier today, the CEC’s website and information center have faced a cyber-attack from from 15 countries. However, no furious reports over the meddling of 15 states into the Russian election have been seen in the MSM so far. In turn, the Russians have reacted to the attack without drama.

In coming days, SF will continue providing reports about the results of the Russian presidential election and further developments.

            Boris Johnson is a dangerous “loose cannon” Buffoon of the highest order. He’s essentially stupid and a boofhead.

          • FlorianGeyer

            He is well educated though, so is he playing the character of a buffoon and hiding his brilliance ? If this is a reality, what is his ‘common purpose’ ?

            The flaw with his ‘act’ if that is so , would be the depths of absurdity he descends to.

            It is the behaviour of a Village Idiot.

        Look. You have no credibility.
        You say things and never give proof.
        Most here depend on proof. Not empty words.

          • jerry hamilton

            You can’t get through to velociraptor. He is on one.
            I get your drift but Russia alone does have balance.
            America and it’s allies need to gain balance.
            They are the invading armies.
            They want to invade and murder.
            Putin wants to stop that. He doesn’t want to attack them.

            I was raised where that famous band came from.

          • Christian Gains

            I agree Jerry…Putin does NOT WANT war…I’m betting that neither do “CHAOS”, the “WARRIOR MONK”, but there are “pointy heads” at Pentagon that REALLY DO! $$$$$$$$$$$$$….[not to mention certain “R.I.N.O.S.” }…LOTS of $$$$$$$!

      • Tudor Miron

        There’s very distinctive difference between western puppet leaders and Putin. Putin has a huge country and united nation behind him. That’s something those snakeheads never even dream to have.

        • jerry hamilton

    The drama would have been the case if the anointed chosen of the elites would have lost the election. Forcing them to go look for a scapegoat. Since in this case the anointed chosen has handily won no need for any drama.

You talk about the trolls on this site – trying viewing your comments as a one eyed US troll of the very first rank! Do you not understand why so many of us (and the world at large) totally distrust hate the USA and the UK long known as the USA’s sidekick or poodle. If you don’t understand this by now one can only assume your either dumb or totally uninformed.

  • Starlight

    For the people of the Russian Federation, no one does it better than Putin. For the ‘allies’ of Russia (like Syria and Iran)- well not so much.

    The zionists that flood outlets like this one play a ‘black’ and ‘white’ game- the way they always influence the sheeple. But life is not black or white.

    Putin has single-handedly rescued Russia from its post USSR slump. And he ensures that in the Final Conflict, Russia will get in the biggest blows- just before Mankind is completely finished, that is.

    But the Deep State is so much more, playing the short, medium and long term games all together in flawless harmony. And the demons who rule the Deep State want to take Mankind to a ‘willing’ species suicide, so Putin’s rise was essential to their ultimate goals.

    What the Deep State cannot have is Putin as a planetary ‘saviour’- a peacemaker who ends the global bullying of the USA and UK. As the MUSCULAR VICAR, Putin must fall flat on his face over and over and over again as the Deep State runs rings around him. Putin must be trained to show servile loyalty to the same West that kicks Russia full in the face on every second day. And Putin must be trained to act only to groom the USA to ever more murderous use of its military machine across the globe.

    The zionist trolls here will attempt to howl down any who point out Putin’s many flaws and terrible actions. Israel provides many attack dogs who act to keep Putin’s reputation amongst the hard-of-thinking unblemished.

    Re-elected, zionist Putin will double-down on his support for Israel and Saudi Arabia. And he’ll sit back and relax as America plans for the beginning of the Iran War later this year (when Trump moves the embassy and withdraws from the treaty with Iran in May). Putin, with his giant majority, is about to become Putin the isolationist – withdrawing into the ‘safety’ of the Russian Federation (much to the absolute disgust of China).

    • AJ

      Putin like any leader certainly does have his flaws & some of the military decision on Syria can be criticised but Russia is hardly a zionist lackey for wanting cordial relations with other countries. Russia has repeatedly stated the unipolar world that the US strives for is coming to an end. Russia wants international relations to be based on mutual respect & understanding. As for retreating into isolationalism – this is just rubbish. Putin is looking to the east with China & the belt & road project, she is member of Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), SCO Shangai Cooperation Organisation, BRICS. You sound disapointed that Russia hasnt started WW3 already which is not in her interests.

      • velociraptor

        eeu is dead without ukraine. kazkgstan will leave it. brics is non-existing group, this is only describeng of some non-cooperating countires by mainyl journalists a little economists. this was 10 years ago, today there is no brics, because the differences between them are too big. shanghai group = colestion of countries licking chinas ass. so, everywhere is disaster russias foreign politics. within 1 generation russia will be only a servant of china. :)))

        • AJ

          EEU dead without Ukraine lol its a failed state which offers nothing. China is the up & coming rising power. A servant to China if that happens may be a better outcome than a servant to the US zionist bankers who want to exploit Russia for its huge natural resources cause endless wars & regime change. Maybe thats a type of world youre happy with.

    • Redadmiral

      I hate having to wipe my feet on you Matt, but that’s what a Matt is for. Let’s look at Democracy in the Empire of Illusion, the US of A. Estimated Turnout (ET) of illegible voters in the 2016 Presidential Election (note: I wrote illegible voters rather than registered voters)*. ET was 55%., of which Hilary Clinton won 27.4 and Donald Trump 27.1, the other 0.5 was consumed by the other 2 candidates. When we look at the % totals for registered voters the turnout was 47.8%, however, when we view the number of people not on the election registrar it is almost 40% more than the 250million turnout in 2016. So, the leader of “the free world” was elected with 19.3% of the adult population voting for him and he was the voters second choice. It interesting to note that between the two of them they got less than 40% of the adult vote. I think I have given my feet a good wipe, Matt. Don’t worry I do tend to walk in a lot of Zionist shite, so, I now know where to come when I need to clean my feet in the future

I see Trump is actually slowly but surely draining the massive US swamp of its evil swamp creatures much to the chagrin of the Deep State and MSM. Also, Trump is signalling the withdrawal of US troops in Syria and trying to get KSA to pick up the tab. Watch Q – ANON’s comments folks and carefully analyse them! It’s all happening. McCab gone, Comey next up for legal proceedings and the list goes on. The world’s most evil woman, HRC and her rapist hubby will shortly bee feeling the heat before they end up with life sentences with no parole.
