What is your take on this outcome? Personally I am not surprised given the corruption. I would have preferred Pavel Grudinin.

Not many "viable alternative candidates" to vote for, sadly. And given the obvious, visible corruption, there was no way there would be any other result. This seems to be the era of obvious political bullshitting.

Assassination is the only way to get rid of Putin, if you think he is a terrible leader

Pssh. Putin is an amature. China's xi dispenced with the pretence of elections and just made himself dictator for life like Julius Cesar.

Well, of the other viable alternatives: One was mysteriously stabbed to death, Putin had one arrested and the third fled the country in fear of his life. There's no one else to vote for because even speaking out against Putin tends to come with being mysteriously beaten to death, stabbed, gassed in your own home, burned alive in your car, so on and so forth.

I'm sure even the two that did run against him will have an accident shortly. Well, one of them will because he's criticizing the election.

The other one seems to be an absolute raging lunatic and actual, literal fascist.

An excellent way to run both countries into the ground with capitalistic exploitation. After that, conditions will be ripe for a real socialist revolution.

US President Trump congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin on his re-election despite the warnings from multiple national security advisers and briefing materials that said "DO NOT CONGRATULATE,"

Trying to remain on friendly terms or at least not bad ones with Russia is such a horrible thing.
I swear it's like the national security departments and both parties' leadership are hell bent on starting another Cold War or something.
Putin is a bad guy, we all get that but starting another proxy war with Russia isn't exactly a stellar idea either.

Obviously, although I don't understand why everyone is acting like we ought to play World Police again. Of course, we need to protect our and our allies' territorial integrity and will need to push back if that is put into jeopardy , but Russia's internal problems are not our responsibility.

Our out of control foreign interventionism and unnecessary escalation used to be a Neo-Conservative position only, but the ideology has sadly become bipartisan in nature. It's like nobody cares that we are $20 Trillion in debt and have more pressing domestic problems to deal with...

Pretending Russia's cyber attacks on democratic elections around the world and probes into power systems won't amount to much isn't going to to stop further aggression. Seems pretty clear Russia isn't interested in peaceful relations.
