Former good article nominee Vladimir Putin was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Justification of my edit[edit]

@Ymblanter: He did not win the election if the extent of the fraud changed the outcome. --Mathmensch (talk) 21:22, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

First, this is your personal opinion, which should not be in the article unless you bring in reliable sources. "Allegedly won election" is not appropriate wording and is a clear WP:BLP violation. Second, nobody ever contested the 2000 election results.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:27, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
No, it is not my personal opinion. Do you have a dictionary at hand? Perhaps you wish to look it up. Please check the sources I provided. In the meantime, I have removed the passage you claim to be inaccurate. --Mathmensch (talk) 21:54, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Aside from the use of WP:ALLEGED in an inappropriate context, it is clearly WP:OFFTOPIC as this is not the article on the 2000 presidential elections... and, yes, WP:BLPVIO most certainly applies. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 21:58, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Excuse my french, but this is bullshit. Are you telling me that whether or not a president of a country is elected in a fair way is off-topic??? You can't be serious. --Mathmensch (talk) 22:01, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes we are serious. SaintAviator lets talk 19:12, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Vladimir Putun's voice[edit]

It could be better if we add a record of the voice? What do you think about it? For example we can use this record. Gussha (talk) 15:42, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 19 February 2017[edit]

Please delete the following line:

During his first term in office, Putin opposed some of the Yeltsin-era oligarchs, as well as his political opponents, resulting in the exile or imprisonment of such people as Boris Berezovsky, Vladimir Gusinsky, Mikhail Khodorkovsky; other oligarchs such as Roman Abramovich and Arkady Rotenberg[174]

Because the source provided is no longer there and the fact doesn't check out with the profiles of the mentioned/linked people - the three profiles I've checked HAVE NOT been exiled or imprisoned. Nesimuistyk (talk) 12:58, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
