Putin’s 2024 Election Campaign: His Platform and Challenges

President Vladimir Putin has officially entered his fifth presidential election. He is seeking six more years in power as Russia remains bogged down in the nearly two-year war in Ukraine and grapples with an increasingly difficult economic outlook due to sanctions and international isolation.

In this episode, we discuss the political platform Putin is likely planning for his new campaign and whether he could face any challenges to his re-election before the March vote.

We are joined by Margarita Zavadskaya, a senior research fellow at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs.

… 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.
