For the first time, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin publicly confirmed his intention to run for re-election as president of the Russian Federation for the fifth time. He made a promise to the speaker of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) parliament, according to Russian propaganda outlets.

According to participants of the ceremony in the Kremlin on the occasion of the "Day of the Hero of the Fatherland," the speaker of the so-called "DPR Parliament," Artem Zhoga, asked the dictator to participate in the upcoming presidential elections. The latter agreed.

The dictator's decision to run in the March presidential election will allow him to remain in power until at least 2030.

Earlier, Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that the dictator would be re-elected with more than 90% of the vote. Meanwhile, according to the Levada Center, support for the current Kremlin leader among Russians is growing. The level of trust and approval is at its highest since the beginning of the terrorist country's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

According to the decision of the Russian CEC (Central Election Commission), the presidential election will last for the first time for three days - from March 15 to 17.
