Russia’s presidential election will be held this weekend to select Vladamir Putin’s successor. We’ve aired a series of exclusive video dispatches from Russia this week from correspondent Simon Marks. Given the current attention on our own Presidential election, it may be an interesting contrast for your class to glimpse the Russian situation and election controversy. Each of these 2 to 3 minute video clips can be viewed separately if desired.
