Moscow [Russia], Mar 18 (ANI): Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday cast his vote in the ongoing Presidential elections in Russia seeking a mandate for a fourth term.

Putin has been holding the Presidential office of Russia since 2012 after winning three Presidential elections consecutively.

Alexei Navalny, who was touted as his fiercest opponent was barred from contesting the Presidential elections and was further suspended for five-years on the basis of embezzlement charges levied against him, as reported by The Guardian.

This move paved the way for the incumbent Putin to easily secure his win in the elections and hold the office for the next six years.

The results of the elections will be announced tomorrow. (ANI)
