By

Russians began voting on Sunday in the Kamchatka Region in Russia’s Far East to elect a president for the fifth time in the nation’s post-Soviet history, the first in which the president will serve a six-year term, and not four years as previously.

Five candidates – Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, nationalist Liberal Democratic party head Vladimir Zhirinovsky, A Just Russia party leader Sergei Mironov and the only independent, billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov – vie for the Russian presidency in the March 4 vote.
