Vladimir Putin Sworn In For 4th Term As President

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been sworn in for a fourth term in office. Speaking in Moscow, Putin promised to follow an economic program that would improve living conditions across the country. He said that improving Russia’s economy would be a major goal of his next six years in office.

Economic growth in Russia slowed because of a recession, reports say. However, Russia observers have linked the recession, in part, to international sanctions against the country.
