Vladimir Putin was elected the President of Russia for a third (non-consectutive) term, with either 65% of the vote or 54-55% of the vote. Putin, 60, has just served four years as the Prime Minister of Russia. He also, before his tenure as PM, served two consectutive years as President of Russia. However, there were "irregularities" such as ballot-stuffing that called into question the fairness of the election. If the vote holds up, Putin will start his 3rd term May 7th.

It was undoubtedly corrupt, but the reasons you mentioned are the less likely ones. Putin has imprisoned people on matters for ludicrous periods of time over the precedent (and legal abilities) e.g. Khodorkovsky and constantly suppresses other parties, especially the communist & socialist parties which each have a massive share of the votes each in reality.

I would actually like to see Russia go Communist again. I wonder how that would work out.
