45% of Voters Support Putin for President

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin currently has the support of 45% of the population in his effort to become president, according to the latest poll by the Public Opinion Fund.

The former president has gained 1 percent of support compared to the previous survey by the pollster, conducted Dec. 25, and 4 percent since early November.

No other presidential candidate received the support of more than 11 percent of those polled. If Putin were to garner less than 50% of the vote, he would be forced into a runoff with the next-place finisher.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
