Vladimir Putin has celebrated his victory in Russia’s presidential election with thousands of supporters in Moscow.

With more than 90 percent of the votes counted, Putin is projected to take 76 percent of the ballot.

He was always expected to win, but what was in question was how many people would vote in his favour.

His nearest competitor was Communist Party candidate, Pavel Grudinin, who came a very distant second with around 12 percent.

Soon after the first exit polls came out, Putin joined crowds in the Red Square.

Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from Moscow.

That film ironically displays weakness. Inferiority complex against blacks with power and gays in present. It just means Russians fear black people and secretly have gay thoughts. I mean if you are superior, why do you fear blacks with power? If you're straight, why do you fear a gay person's presence? This is why Russia will never be better than America. They are too afraid to grow and want to live the same way forever, hence Putin living in office.
