Putin inaugurated for fifth term as Russian president

Addis Ababa, May 6, 2024 (FBC) – Vladimir Putin’s fifth term as president of Russia has begun after his inauguration in Moscow on Tuesday.

The ceremony was held at the Grand Kremlin Palace, after the 71-year-old leader took a short car ride to the location from his work office. The current protocol was first used in 1996, when Boris Yeltsin assumed his second term in office.

Lawmakers from both chambers of the nation’s parliament and justices of the Constitutional Court were present. Following the oath, Chief Justice Valery Zorkin confirmed Putin’s fifth presidency, which will last for six years under the current constitution.

Putin’s previous inaugurations took place in 2000, 2004, 2012, and 2018.

“Russia holds the answer to thousands of years of history and ancestors who took inaccessible heights. As a united and great nation, Russians will overcome obstacles and realize their plans, and will win, said Putin in his inaugural speech.

“Russia will continue to work with partners to form a multipolar world order.”
