Beneficent Putin aids democracy in Russia

Alexei Navalny barred from Russia presidential poll

Alexei Navalny is an anti-corruption campaigner who Putin got the courts to convict on an embezzlement charge (for which he got a suspended sentence) so as a convicted felon he is now ineligible to run for the presidency next year.

This will become the fourth time that Putin will be "elected" now that he removed the term limit on the presidency.

And they wonder why he's Trumps idol.

You meant "ineligible" to run.

Yes, this is the way a Putin-style democratic process works.

Yes. It was a typo. I'll edit it now.

Edit: I was hung up on how to spell ineligible and lost my train of thought.
