In light of current events is Putin still nailed on to stay in office?, what’s your thoughts?

Who's going to stop him? - He'll just poison all his opponents

The current events won't harm him one bit. Still 1.01.

Everyone's acting like our secret service has never done similar things and we carry out drone executions with collateral victims almost every week. To Russia he was an enemy of the state. I'm not saying what's happened is OK just is reacting worth the potential consequences.

It's terrible that they expect sport (world cup boycott) to be dragged into this when sport has so often been the healer like it was in South Africa and even in the recent winter Olympics softening relations with North Korea.

Putin's approval rating at 80% (according to Gallup, a US company) (this time last year):

I'm sure that the spy and other incidents would/will hugely bolster his support. I'd think that the average Russian citizen has less than zero sympathy for billionaires and (from their perspective) traitors from the post-Communist period who are hiding in exile - thieves/traitors hiding overseas.

This especially where they are held up in the UK, this given the bizarre levels of hostility being directed towards Russia by the UK/USA establishments, who have essentially made Russia a scapegoat for their own election failures (those resulting in Brexit/Trump).

Sounds like the price of him being poisoned by our secret service before the result. I wouldn't take 1.01 about any political betting these days.

the poisoning was just a lesson for other spies nothing more than that. He has no opponents at the moment. one promising oponent is Alexey Navalny with his ~2million subscribers on youtube and all the investigation videos about corruption. all the others are a smaller "copy paste" of putin.

Putin wins with 73.9% of the vote. 70-80% at 4-1 was tipped here a couple of months back

Surely the best value 1.01 you'll ever get?
