Putin will be a president - level 3, A12

06-03-2012 18:00

Vladimir Putin will be the Russian president again. When all the votes were counted, he got more than 64% of the votes. It means that he will be the Russian president for the third time.

However, many people in Russia are not happy with the result and they will probably protest against it. People from the opposition parties say that the elections were unfair and manipulated.

They say that thousands of people were taken from the villages to Moscow to vote for Vladimir Putin. Some people saw groups of voters driving around in buses from one polling station to the other. They probably voted more than once.

Vladimir Putin said that the elections were fair and they showed what the Russian people really want.
