فلاديمير بوتين: أطول حاكم للكرملين في روسيا منذ ستالين

By Ninian Carter

March 15, 2024 - March 17, 2024 - من المؤكد أن يتم انتخاب فلاديمير بوتين لولاية خامسة كرئيس لروسيا، ممدداً حكمه الذي دام ربع قرن، ويفسح المجال لبقائه في السلطة حتى العام 2036.

Vladimir Putin is set to win a fifth term as Russia’s president in March’s election, extending a quarter-century of rule by potentially keeping him in power well into the next decade.

In 2020, he amended the Constitution of Russia to exempt himself from presidential term limits until 2036, when he’ll be 83.

Putin is Russia’s longest-serving Kremlin leader since Soviet-era dictator Joseph Stalin who was in power for 10,636 days – Putin has served 8,844 days, as of March 17, 2024, when polling booths close.

All credible opposition to Putin is either dead, in prison or exiled, establishing his power over the country of 144 million people as absolute.
