Putin Celebrates Landslide Election Victory

On Monday, congratulations poured in from around the world as Russian President Vladimir Putin celebrated his landslide election victory. With 99.84 percent of the votes counted Monday morning, Putin won with a resounding 76.6 percent, nearly 65 percent ahead of his closest rival. Chinese President Xi Jinping, an ally of the Russian government, sent a congratulatory message to Putin, and added that the current China-Russia partnership is "at the best level in history." However there was no reaction from the United States, as it is still issuing long-awaited sanctions against Russian "cyber actors" for interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
