On 6 December 2017, incumbent President Vladimir Putin announced that he would seek re-election for a second consecutive term and fourth term overall. Putin is widely expected to win and has consistently scored higher than 40%, and often much higher, in opinion polls since the last presidential election.
Putin bragged in a two-hour speech about new ICBM missiles, silent submarines and a nuclear-powered cruise missile. Putin also showed off a video animation of a nuclear attack on the USA.
Putin is trying to look like the strong leader of a relevant country that can still match the United States as a superpower. This is posturing for his domestic image.
