Since retiring from professional chess in 2005, Garry Kasparov has become one of the most prominent voices in Russia’s pro-democracy movement. On DW's Interview, he speaks his mind and calls Vladimir Putin a "dictator."
Russia needs a "real breakthrough" to improve the life quality of its citizens and face historical challenges, President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address. He also urged his opponents to work with the Kremlin.
The Kremlin has put its faith in one particular group of voters for Russia's presidential election: women. Will a large turnout by female voters propel President Vladimir Putin to an overwhelming victory?
Vladimir Putin told supporters in a victory speech in Moscow that Russia was "bound for success." While officials have reported strong turnout, monitoring groups have reported electoral violations.
President Vladimir Putin has cultivated his image as the force that guided Russia through the fallout of the collapse of the Soviet Union. That’s left many voters with little choice in the upcoming election.
