Vladimir Putin Seeks Fifth Term As Russian President

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he will stand again for a fifth term in office.

He made the announcement at an awards ceremony for participants of the full-scale war he launched against Ukraine last year.

It comes a day after election officials set March 15-17, 2024, as dates for the presidential election.

The re-election of Mr. Putin is seen as inevitable, with opposition almost non-existent and Russian media completely under his control.

Mr. Putin served as president in 2000-2008, returning to the role from a stint as prime minister in 2012.
