Vladimir Putin announces presidential candidacy in 2024 elections
Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that he will run in the 2024 presidential election.
Putin announced his decision to seek to extend his rule on Friday. He is almost certain to win a fifth term as president, allowing him to continue leading Russia’s invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.
If elected, the 71-year-old will extend his 24-year leadership of Russia, albeit with an eight-year stint spent formally as prime minister. His tenure is now the longest of any ruler of Russia since Josef Stalin.
